While completing a Ph.D. at NYU, Falcon created PyTorch Lightning, which would go on to become one of the most widely used machine learning research frameworks. He also worked as a researcher at Facebook AI and at Goldman Sachs and co-founded the now-acquired AI startup NextGenVest. A native of Venezuela, William began his career as a US Naval Officer.
