Yaniv Taigman

Research Scientist

I graduated from Tel-Aviv University with a Master’s in Computer Science. While pursuing my PhD research, I co-founded where I held the position of CTO. When was acquired by Facebook in 2012, I joined the office in Menlo Park to lead research and engineering projects. During this time I worked on efficient methods for face representation (DeepFace project) with colleagues, and helped start the Facebook AI Research (FAIR) group. In 2016, I established a satellite FAIR team in Tel-Aviv.
