Short Bio

Ramin Hasani is a Principal AI and Machine Learning Scientist at the Vanguard Group and a Research Affiliate at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Before that, he was a Postdoctoral Associate at CSAIL MIT, leading a number of projects on modeling intelligence and sequential decision-making, with Prof. Daniela Rus. He received his Ph.D. degree with distinction in Computer Science at Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien), Austria (May 2020). His Ph.D. dissertation and continued research on Liquid Neural Networks got recognized internationally by numerous nominations and awards such as TÜV Austria Dissertation Award nomination 2020, and HPC Innovation Excellence Award 2022. Hasani’s research focuses on the development of interpretable and robust deep learning and decision-making algorithms. He has also been a frequent TEDx Speaker. Ramin has completed an M.Sc. in Electronic Engineering at Politecnico di Milano (2015), Italy, and has got his B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering – Electronics at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran (2012).
