Sercan Ă–. Arik

I am currently working as a Staff Research Scientist and Manager at Google Cloud AI Research. My current work is motivated by the mission of democratizing AI and bringing it to the most impactful use cases, from Healthcare, Finance, Technology, Retail, Media, Manufacturing, and many other industries. Towards this goal, I focus on how to make AI more high-performance for the most-demanded data types, interpretable, trustable, data-efficient, robust and reliable. I led research projects that were launched as major Google Cloud products and yielded significant business impact.

Before joining Google, I was a Research Scientist at Baidu Silicon Valley AI Lab. At Baidu, I have focused on deep learning research, particularly for applications in human-technology interfaces. I co-developed state-of-the-art speech synthesis, keyword spotting, voice cloning, and neural architecture search systems.

I completed my PhD degree in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. In a broad sense, my background lies at the intersection of computer sciences, information sciences and physical sciences, motivated by both fundamental problems and high-impact applications. I have co-authored more than 50 journal and conference publications.
