My name is Amir Saffari. I’ve a PhD in Computer Vision and Machine Learning and work at Alexa AI, Amazon as a Principal ML Scientist. Currently, I focus on generative AI, training large language models (LLMs), teaching LLMs to use thousands of tools and APIs to accomplish personalised and complex tasks in real-time, reasoning using weak supervision, reinforcement learning based program synthesis, and complex question answering using differentiable knowledge graphs. In past, I have done research on: ML for drug discovery, generative chemistry and molecule design, generative music, graph neural networks, creative AI, and semi-supervised learning.
