Canada CIFAR AI Chair
Pan-Canadian AI Strategy
Gauthier Gidel is a Canada CIFAR AI Chair at Mila and an assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research (DIRO) at Université de Montréal.
Gidel’s research lies at the intersection between learning, game theory and optimization. He aims to build a better understanding of adversarial formulations for machine learning (ML). He’s interested in the fundamental reasons behind the great successes of adversarial formulations and at efficient training methods in such an adversarial context.
