Song Han

Assistant Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Song Han is an assistant professor in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. His research focuses on efficient deep learning computing. He has proposed “deep compression” as a way to reduce neural network size by an order of magnitude, and the hardware implementation “efficient inference engine” that first exploited model compression and weight sparsity in deep learning accelerators. He has received best paper awards at the International Conference on Learning Representations and Field-Programmable Gate Arrays symposium. He is also a recipient of an NSF Career Award and MIT Tech Review’s 35 Innovators Under 35 award. Many of his pruning, compression, and acceleration techniques have been integrated into commercial artificial intelligence chips. He earned a PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford University.
