RESEARCH STRATEGY

To determine some experts In AI and Machine Learning, we started by scouring through industry publications like EM 360 Tech and credible blogs (authored by experts in IT) to get general insights into the field of AI/Machine Learning. Our initial search yielded some pre-compiled lists of AI/Machine Learning experts, which we examined to check if they met the criteria specified in this project. We compared the lists and only picked on individuals with significant contributions in the field of AI and who are working in academia and commercial organizations. We identified the experts including Raymond Ray Kurzweil, Yann LeCun, Dr. Fei Fei Li, Andrew Ng, Richard Sutton, Professor Stuart J Russell and Jeff Dean. Additional details on their names, titles, departments they are serving and their contact information have been included and presented under the "findings" section of this brief.
