He has received many scientific awards and is often called the father of modern AI by the media. His lab's deep learning artificial neural networks have revolutionized machine learning. By the mid 2010s, they were on over 3 billion smartphones, and used billions of times per day, e.g., for Facebook's automatic translation (30 billion translations per week), Google's and Microsoft's speech recognition, Google Translate, Apple's Siri & QuickType, Amazon's Alexa, etc. In the 1980s and 90s he also pioneered artificial curiosity, generative adversarial networks, linear Transformers, and meta-learning machines that learn to learn.
