Tomáš Mikolov is a Czech computer scientist working in the field of machine learning. He is currently[when?] a Research Scientist at Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics.


Mikolov obtained his PhD in Computer Science from Brno University of Technology for his work on recurrent neural network-based language models.[1][2] He is the lead author of the 2013 paper that introduced the Word2vec technique in natural language processing[3] and is an author on the FastText architecture.[4][5]

Prior to joining Facebook in 2014, Mikolov worked as a visiting researcher at Johns Hopkins University, Université de Montréal, Microsoft and Google.[citation needed] He left Facebook at some time in 2019/2020 to join the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics.[6]

Mikolov has argued that humanity might be at a greater existential risk if an artificial general intelligence is not developed.[7]
