Seminar by Emmanuel Mazer

Abstract: Real life applications of Bayesian Inference will be presented, from financial applications to automated driving and defense applications.

Short Bio: Emmanuel Mazer is a senior researcher at CNRS. He defended two doctoral dissertations in Robotics in 1981 and 1989. He stayed at the Artificial Intelligence Department of the University of Edinburgh during his postdoc and was a fellow researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for 3 years. He is a founder of several high tech companies in France and abroad (including Probayes). He was part of the European projects BIBA (Bayesian Inspired Brain and artefact) and BACS (Bayesian Approach to Cognitive Systems). Within ProbaYes, he contributed to several industrial projects involving computational geometry and Bayesian inference techniques. He participated to the design and implementation of ProBT, a software allowing the interpretation of the Bayesian programs. In 2013 he received with his colleagues “The best innovation awards at the ITP conference sponsored by the department of Defence and "Délégation Générale de l’Armement. His current interest is on the design of a probabilistic machine (European project BAMBI).
