Academia vs. Industry: The Ultimate Choice

Tal Linzen, Assistant Professor of Linguistics, New York University
Adina Williams, NYC Research Scientists, Facebook AI Research
Leila Wehbe, Assistant Professor, Carnegie Mellon University
Andrew Lampinen, Research Scientist, DeepMind

Moderator: Esti Blanco-Elorrieta, Harvard University

Whether to stay in academia or go into industry is a question most PhD and Post-docs grapple with at one point or another of their careers. In this session, we will hear the experiences of two people who made each choice, covering topics such as what they like and don’t like of the path they chose and what factors contributed to their choice. Then, we will open the floor for questions from attendees so that they have a chance to ask their doubts, ask about specific opinions, etc.
