• Ng is a pioneer in the field of deep learning AI technology. In 2012 his Google Brain programme had a breakthrough when 16,000 linked computers dedicated to mimicking some aspects of human brain activity trained itself to recognize a cat based on 10 million digital images taken from YouTube videos.
  • After a break from the field of AI, Ng decided he wanted to return, and after "looking around to find the organisation with the best shot at making progress on AI, I decided to join Baidu".
  • Ng is currently working on speech recognition technology to improve accuracy from 95 per cent to 99 per cent, a move he believes would be a "game changer".
