James is our Deep Learning Accelerator team lead! “I almost went into Physics for my graduate degree! For my undergrad, I did Engineering Physics at UBC, and I loved it so much I was considering pursuing it for my Master’s. I ended up going with the Electrical & Computer Engineering graduate program at UofT, and that’s how I was able to join aUToronto. What I’m doing now at aUToronto is just as, if not more, exciting than what I did in undergrad. At UBC I tuned mirrors and optical cars to work with lasers.

I really like that the way we operate is as if we were our own company!” @ Toronto, Ontario ... See MoreSee Less
As the official industry partner to the Autodrive challenge, GM has been a huge source of support to aUToronto. They kickstarted the challenge by providing us with the car that is now Zeus!

Although we’ve come so far, we still have miles to go. We’re incredibly grateful to GM for giving us the wonderful opportunity to compete in this challenge, and are excited for our future collaborations with them. ... See MoreSee Less
