Christopher Kanan is a computer scientist at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY, USA.

Computer scientist Christopher Kanan has helped establish a new field of artificial intelligence (AI) research known as continual learning. His goal is for AI to keep learning new things from continuous streams of data and to do so without forgetting everything that came before.

In an interview, Kanan talks about machine memories, breaking the rules of training neural networks, and whether AI will ever achieve human-level learning.
