What got you into AI?
I was amazed by the paper “Building High-level Features Using Large Scale Unsupervised Learning” showing that by just seeing many unlabeled photo, a machine could learn “human face” and “cut face” concept. Since then I have been interested in AI since I think developing it has a deep connection to understanding ourselves.

What is most exciting for you in AI?
AI could be an evolution of human race if it is properly developed.

What do you think is the biggest obstacle for AI adoption?
For consumer products, limited computational budgets are the biggest obstacle.
