**Bio**

Gary Becigneul holds a PhD in Machine Learning from ETH Zurich.

He finished high school at 16 and at 21 obtained a master in mathematics from the University of Cambridge, also known as *The Part III*.

His deepest spiritual aim resides in buying as many Lamborghinis as he can before turning 30.

He is the laureate of the Junior Fermat Prize 2015, awarded every two years in France for a contribution to mathematics while in undergrad.

In 2019, he went half-a-year to M.I.T, developing graph neural networks for molecular data, presenting at AIDM 2020.

His subtle mind is often tortured by the most profound philosophical questions, the latest one being: *why can I bench-press more than I can squat? *

Which was the original motivation for undertaking his doctoral studies… *“maybe I can build an A.I. to answer this question…” *
