Sugato Basu



I am a Principal Scientist at Google (Google Scholar). I lead a team that focuses on applying AI algorithms (specifically in the areas of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing) to different challenging problems in Computational Advertising, in particular Search Ads.

My wife is a Principal Scientist and Machine Learning Leader in the Video Display Intelligence Lab (Smart TV Division) at Samsung Research America (SRA). Before that, she was the Director of AI Research at SRA. Prior to joining Samsung, she has worked in SRI as a Principal Scientist and in Google Research as a Visiting Scientist.

We are blessed with a 10-year old daughter who loves chess, piano, swimming, coding and robotics, and dreams of being an AI scientist when she grows up.
