Professor of Computer Science and Operations Research
Alain Tapp is a full professor at the University of Montreal in the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research. He began his career working on fundamental aspects of cryptography, computability, and quantum physics. Over time, his playful passion for artificial intelligence led him to make a decisive change of direction. Thanks to the very generous support he received from MILA, he has been able to devote himself fully to this exploding field for the past few years. He is interested in the fundamental aspects, but also in the links that exist between cognitive psychology, linguistics and artificial intelligence.
