Satrajit (Sat) Chatterjee

Engineering Leader and ML Researcher-at-Large
Palo Alto, CA, USA

Sat is an Engineering Leader and Machine Learning Researcher who was at Google AI till recently. His current research focuses on fundamental questions in deep learning (such as understanding why neural networks generalize at all) as well as various applications of ML (ranging from hardware design and verification to quantitative finance). Before Google, he was a Senior Vice President at Two Sigma, a leading quantitative investment manager, where he founded one of the first successful deep learning-based alpha research groups on Wall Street and led a team that built one of the earliest end-to-end FPGA-based trading systems for general purpose ultra-low latency trading. Prior to that, he was a Research Scientist at Intel where he worked on microarchitectural performance analysis and formal verification for on-chip networks. He did his undergraduate studies at IIT Bombay, has a PhD in Computer Science from UC Berkeley, and has published in the top machine learning, design automation, and formal verification conferences.
