Portrait of Professor Michael Osborne

with Professor Michael Osborne
Dyson Associate Professor in Machine Learning

Michael A Osborne (DPhil Oxon) is an expert in the development of machine intelligence in sympathy with societal needs. His work on robust and scalable inference algorithms in Machine Learning has been successfully applied in diverse and challenging...

Machine learning, or the study of algorithms that can learn and act, allows automated decision-making that is both scalable and free of human error. It is becoming increasingly apparent that many tasks and even jobs traditionally done by humans can be carried out in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost by machines. Dr Michael Osborne, Associate Professor in Machine Learning, and Co-Director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Technology and Employment, will look at current advances in machine learning, and consider the applications these could have on future technologies.
