Geoffrey Everest Hinton is a British Canadian 75 years old Cognitive Psychologist and Computer scientist who has expertise in AI technology. He is Best Known for his work in Artificial Neural Networks.
Geoffrey Hinton is famously called as Godfather of Artificial Intelligence because of his notable work in the field of artificial intelligence. He worked for Google for a long period of time and played a significant role in developing the AI chatbot for Google.
