My goal is to advance machine intelligence and my research is in probabilistic machine learning. Machine learning has a large overlap with statistics, plays a central role in data science, and is fuelling the AI revolution we are experiencing today. My recent work aims at automating decision-making and democratising machine learning. I am interested in learning representations, meta-learning and, more generally, machine reasoning.
I received the Electrical Engineering degree and the PhD in Applied
Sciences from the Université
catholique de Louvain, respectively in 2001 and 2005. As a member
of the Machine Learning
Group and the Crypto
Group, I worked on the European projects OPTIVIP, in which I developed neural networks embedded in a visual prosthesis for blind people, and SCARD, where I evaluated the robustness of cryptographic hardware against side channel attacks exploiting electro-magnetic radiation. Next, I did a Post-doc with John Shawe-Taylor at University College London and collaborated closely with Manfred Opper. I was also an
active participant of the PASCAL European network of
excellence. Until December 2015, I held a Honorary Senior Research Associate position in the Centre for Computational
Statistics and Machine Learning.
In October 2009, I joined Xerox Research Centre Europe, where I led the Machine Learning group. The team conducted applied research in machine learning, computational statistics and mechanism design, with applications in customer care, transportation and governmental services. I joined Amazon, Berlin, as an Applied Science Manager in October 2013, where I was in charge of delivering zero-parameter machine learning algorithms. I am now a Principal Applied Scientist. Recently, I served as an Area Chair for NIPS '11, NIPS '13, AISTATS '14, AISTATS '15, ICML '15, and NIPS '17. I was Tutorials Chair at ECML-PKDD
'09 and Industry Track Chair for ECML-PKDD '12, and taught a lecture on Bayesian optimisation at Machine Learning Summer School '16.
