Rakuten Institute of Technology - PriceMinister
RIT Paris Manager and PriceMinister CTO
Hi! I am CTO of PriceMinister and Manager of Rakuten Institute of Technology Paris, focusing on Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Computer Vision, and Virtual Reality. And it's great to connect real world business and technology with advanced research. Since I started my career in the 90's as an engineer and later as a R&D Manager, I most of the time worked in the fields of Neural Networks and Virtual Reality. So many things happened in these areas in about 25 years! And yet so many things remain to be done! My favorite topic is Consciousness, from a scientific and philosophical viewpoint, and especially in relation with Artificial Intelligence.
