Professor Stephen Roberts FREng
Professor of Machine Learning, University of Oxford

Stephen Roberts is Professor of Machine Learning in the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford. He is internationally recognised for his pioneering work in developing methods for automated reasoning and decision making in complex engineering problems, especially those in which noise and uncertainty abound. In particular, he has developed a number of novel methods for data analysis, such as Bayesian models for independent component analysis, non-Gaussian multi-variate systems and network decomposition. He has successfully applied them in a wide range of products and problem domains (including astronomy, biology, finance, sensor networks, control and system monitoring).
