Tomas Pfister
Researcher (Deep Learning/Computer Vision) - Entrepreneur - Consultant


I'm an Oxbridge computer science / artificial intelligence grad turned entrepreneur.

I’ve been passionate about tech products since a small child. I wanted to understand computers better, so I went on to major in computer science at Cambridge. Then I got bit by the AI bug, so I went on to do a PhD at Oxford with Prof Andrew Zisserman. On the side I’ve worked with a startup called Wakelet to take a cool product idea from conception to launch. Before taking up the position at Oxford I was interning with Google in Mountain View, CA.

I consult in machine learning, computer vision & deep learning. I aim for moonshots: coming up with radical solutions for really big problems.

I also started pioneering computer vision research into recognising facial micro-expressions (very short facial expressions that can be used for lie detection), resulting in a patent and lots of press.

In my spare time I like flying (I'm training for my private pilot license).
