Haggai Maron

I am an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Technion. I am also a senior research scientist at NVIDIA Research and a member of NVIDIA's TLV lab. My primary research interest is in machine learning, with a focus on deep learning for structured data. Specifically, I study how to apply deep learning techniques to sets, graphs, point clouds, surfaces, weight spaces and other mathematical objects that have an inherent symmetry structure. My goal is twofold: first, to understand and design deep learning architectures from a theoretical perspective, for example, by analyzing their expressive power; and second, to demonstrate their practical effectiveness on real-world problems involving structured data. I completed my Ph.D. in 2019 at the Weizmann Institute of Science under the supervision of Prof. Yaron Lipman.
You can get an idea of what I am working on by taking a look at these three recent talks I gave:

You can also listen to a recent podcast with me on graph neural networks (hebrew).
