from Pietro Perona
Sam was one of the most creative researchers in machine learning. He was an exceptional lecturer. He was dedicated body-and-soul to deeper understanding and to teaching other people. He had a warm, generous and engaging personality. During his Caltech years he organized an applied mathematics boot camp for incoming CNS students. If there are angels, Sam is one of them.
