Speaker: Anjuli Kannan

Software Engineer @GoogleBrain

Anjuli Kannan is a senior software engineer at Google. She is a member of the Brain Team, which works to advance the field of machine intelligence through a combination of basic research, software (TensorFlow), and applications that improve people's lives. Anjuli is especially interested applications of machine learning to problems in natural language understanding. Recently she was a core member of the team that brought the Smart Reply feature to Inbox by Gmail. Launched in 2015, Smart Reply was the first Google-scale application to effectively apply recurrent neural networks in language understanding, as well as the first to leverage Google's open-source TensorFlow.
