Sepp Hochreiter

Head of the Institute for Machine Learning, Johannes Kepler University Linz

Sepp Hochreiter is heading the Institute for Machine Learning, the LIT AI Lab and the AUDI.JKU deep learning center at the Johannes Kepler University of Linz, Austria and is director of the Institute of Advanced Research in Artificial Intelligence (IARAI). Sepp Hochreiter is a pioneer of Deep Learning. His contributions to the Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) and the analysis of the vanishing gradient are viewed as milestones and key-moments of the history of both machine learning and Deep Learning. His seminal works on the vanishing gradient and LSTM were the starting points for what became later known as Deep Learning. LSTM has been overwhelmingly successful in handwriting recognition, generation of writings, language modeling and identification, automatic language translation, speech recognition, analysis of audio data, as well as analysis, annotation, and description of video data.
