Francois Schnitzler is a senior researcher at Technicolor, in the Data Analytics team. He joined in 2015. He is taking part in various data mining projects and spreading machine learning expertise within the company.
He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Liege in September 2012. His Ph.D. focused on developing probabilistic graphical models for large probability distributions, and in particular ensemble of Markov trees.
After his Ph.D. and before joining Technicolor, he was a postdoc fellow and later a senior researcher at the Technion. In the context of the FP7 project Insight, he worked under the supervision of prof. Shie Mannor on the early detection of traffic incidents in Dublin using thousands of sensor data streams. He was involved in time-series modeling and event detection from heterogeneous data and crowdsourcing. He also worked on reinforcement learning.
