Geoffrey J. Gordon
Early life and education
Pineau was born in Ottawa, Ontario. She played violin in the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra. She eventually studied engineering at the University of Waterloo. She completed her postgraduate education in robotics at Carnegie Mellon University in 2004. A chapter of Pineau's Masters thesis, Point-based value iteration: An anytime algorithm for POMDPs, has been published and cited almost 1,000 times. Her doctoral thesis, Tractable Planning Under Uncertainty: Exploiting Structure, was supervised by Sebastian Thrun and Geoff Gordon.
Pineau develops models for algorithms and models that allow learning in partially complex domains. She is co-director of McGill University's Reasoning and Learning Lab. She founded two start-ups that develop robotic assistants for the elderly; the SmartWheeler initiative and the Nursebot platform. SmartWheeler is a multi-modal wheelchair that combines artificial intelligence and robotics.
She is a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence and a Senior Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research. In 2016 she was inducted into the Royal Society of Canada College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists. Pineau investigates approaches to personal medicine, using data from medical charts, X-ray images, clinical notes and lab reports to generate new treatment strategies. She teaches Artificial intelligence how to analyse medical scans. Her team have used Deep learning for detecting seizures. She is an editor of the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research and the Journal of Machine Learning Research. She has given lectures for the Artificial Intelligence Channel.
In 2017 Pineau was appointed the head of the Facebook AI Research Lab in Montreal. She won a Facebook Research Award. She spoke at the third annual Canada 2020 conference. Here she focuses on reinforcement learning, deep learning, computer vision and video understanding. In 2018 she won the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowship. She challenges Artificial intelligence research that is not reproducible. She is President of the International Machine Learning Society.
