Interests: Theoretical foundations of machine learning, design and analysis of efficient algorithms for machine learning and mathematical optimization.
Elad Hazan is a professor of computer science at Princeton university. His research focuses on the design and analysis of algorithms for basic problems in machine learning and optimization. Amongst his contributions are the co-development of the AdaGrad algorithm for training learning machines, and the first sublinear-time algorithms for convex optimization. He is the recipient of the Bell Labs prize, (twice) the IBM Goldberg best paper award in 2012 and 2008, a European Research Council grant, a Marie Curie fellowship and Google Research Award (twice). He served on the steering committee of the Association for Computational Learning and has been program chair for COLT 2015. In 2017 he co-founded In8 inc. focusing on efficient optimization and control, acquired by Google in 2018. He is the co-founder and director of Google AI Princeton.
