Dr. Lior Horesh is a Principal Research Scientist and a Senior Manager of the Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science group the MIT-IBM Research Lab. His group’s mission is to approach some of the big challenges the field of AI is facing, from a principled mathematical angle. This involves conceiving and bringing in state-of-the-art mathematical theories, algorithms and analysis tools, in hope of advancing fundamentally generalizability, scalability and interpretability of AI.
Additionally, Dr. Horesh holds an adjunct Associate Professor position at the Computer Science department of Columbia University where he teaches graduate level Advanced Machine Learning and Quantum Computing courses. Dr. Horesh Received his Ph.D. in 2006 from UCL and joined IBM in 2009.
Dr. Horesh's research work focuses on algorithmic and theoretical aspects of tensor algebra, numerical analysis, simulation of complex systems, inverse problems, non-linear optimization, experimental design, machine learning, quantum computing and the interplay between first principles models and AI in the context of symbolic scientific discovery.
