Vedant Misra

About me

I am a researcher, engineer, and entrepreneur passionate about advancing science and technology in order to develop new kinds of useful systems.

My background is in developing and shipping high-value automated systems by leveraging and advancing the state of the art in deep learning. My objective is to understand the computational principles of intelligence, and use them to rapidly accelerate social and technical progress.


I work on artificial intelligence research at Google Research, focused on developing systems that can perform reasoning.

Previously, I worked with Ilya Sutskever to lead the Reasoning, Algorithms, and Multimodal teams at OpenAI, focused on developing methods for unlocking new capabilities that we believe to be on the path to artificial general intelligence.

Before that, I led the Machine Learning Labs team at HubSpot, focused on developing new products with text, images, and audio by leveraging large neural networks and human feedback.

Prior to that I was founder and CEO of Kemvi, which was acquired by HubSpot. Our vision was to accelerate the topline growth of businesses by using machine learning to understand and personalize language at scale.

I studied physics, mathematics, and economics at Columbia University as a Rabi Scholar, worked on black hole research at the Institute for Strings, Cosmology, and Astroparticle physics at Columbia, and studied complex systems at NECSI, an independent think tank focused on applying methods from physics and math to societal problems.
