What's happening at U of T
CNBC says a major part of why the Vector Institute is attracting top machine learning talent from Silicon Valley is because of U.S. President Donald Trump.
“People have been emailing and calling to ask: When can I send my application?” Raquel Urtasun, an associate professor of computer science at U of T and co-founder of the Vector Institute, told CNBC.
Spotlight on literature
A U of T doctoral engineering student wants Kurdish speakers around the world to read the works of Emily Dickinson. Madeh Piryonesi, who arrived in Canada in 2015 from Iran, translates the literature into Kurdish and Farsi. He has recently published two books of Emily Dickinson's poetry and translated several other works since 2012.
