Mind Foundry (MF) was spun out in November 2015 by Profs Steve Roberts and Mike Osborne, the lead academics behind Oxford University’s Machine Learning Group (MLRG) in the Department of Engineering Science.
Mind Foundry is commercialising a Collaborative AI Platform that is powerful enough to be trusted by experts and easy enough to be used by people throughout any organization. To date, the platform has been used to solve some of the most challenging applications of Machine Learning and AI, from making predictions in volatile financial markets to calibrating quantum computers.
Professors Stephen Roberts & Michael Osborne
Stephen is a Professor of Engineering Science and leads the Machine Learning Research Group at the University of Oxford. He is a founding Director of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Autonomous, Intelligent Machines and Systems (AIMS) and Director of the Oxford-Man Institute. His main area of research lies in machine learning approaches to data analysis and he has particular interests in the development of machine learning theory for problems in time series analysis and decision theory.
Michael is a Professor of Machine Learning, an Official Fellow of Exeter College and a Faculty Member of the Oxford-Man Institute for Quantitative Finance, all at the University of Oxford. He joined the Oxford Martin School as Lead Researcher on the Oxford Martin Programme on Technology and Employment in January 2015. His work on robust and scalable inference algorithms in Machine Learning has been successfully applied in diverse and challenging contexts, from aiding the detection of planets in distant solar systems to enabling self-driving cars to determine when their maps may have changed due to roadworks.
