I am a physicist working on neural networks and machine learning. Currently, I am member of the research staff at the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab and IBM Research in Cambridge, MA. Prior to this, I was a member of the research staff at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ. Broadly defined, my research focuses on the computational properties of neural networks. Particularly, I am interested in implementing ideas coming from neuroscience in modern AI systems. I am also interested in the relationship between models of associative memory (also known as Hopfield nets) and neural networks used in deep learning. I received a PhD in Physics from Princeton University in 2014. You can also find me on twitter (@DimaKrotov).
