Carl Edward Rasmussen

Carl is Professor of Machine Learning. He heads the Computational and Biological Learning Lab and the Machine Learning Group at the Engineering Department, and is Chief Scientist at, a Cambridge AI-company building a platform for decision-making. Before that, he was a Research Scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto under the supervision of Geoffrey Hinton. He has broad interests in probabilistic inference and decision making, including reinforcement learning, time series models, stochastic processes and modelling in control. His book with Chris Williams, Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning (2006), is a reference in the field. Carl is an ELLIS fellow and a fellow at the Turing Institute.
