It’s always a pleasure to see former ESIEE students doing well. Yann Le Cun has long been internationally recognised for his work on machine learning and I’d been wondering for some time whether something like this would happen.
And it has.
So congratulations to Yann and his two colleagues for winning this year’s Turing prize….
…and to my former colleagues in the ESIEE Computer Science department who provided the fertile environment that started him off in the 80s.
