Yoav Shoham

Yoav is a professor of computer science at Stanford University and a part-time employee at Google. An expert in Artificial Intelligence, Yoav is a former Director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The Israel native has co-founded several companies, including TradingDynamics, which was sold to Ariba in 1999, and Katango, which was acquired by Google in 2011. His interests include game theory, logic, electronic commerce and online education. Yoav’s biggest time management blunder involves a forgotten wedding anniversary – even though his wife warned him and arranged a fancy dinner – but let’s not get into that.
