Me, Myself, and I

working on my computer

My name is Benoit Steiner. I am a software architect based in the Silicon Valley specializing in high performance computing and algorithms for machine learning.

I studied engineering in France at the Ecole Centrale Paris and computer science at the Ecole des Mines de Paris. I then started my professional career by working for startups and established companies in the EDA industry for about 10 years. After a stint at Coverity working on software verification and 6 years working at Google on deep learning, I eventually joined Facebook where I focus on systems research.

As you can imagine, I am interested in technology as a whole, and software in particular. Over the years I have been involved in various computer related projects such as the Videolan multimedia solutions, or more recently the Eigen linear algebra library.

When I am not tinkering with hardware or software, I enjoy traveling and taking the offbeat path.
