A Career in AI, thoughts and reflections
A Career in AI, thoughts and reflections – a virtual talk by Fellow and Tutor, Professor Philip Torr
Join us on zoom for a talk by Catz Fellow, Professor Philip Torr, where he will describe his career in AI, in particular some of the start-ups and applications he has been involved in, and will give some thoughts on the future for AI.
Catz Fellow Professor Philip Torr studied Pure Mathematics at Southampton University, and first came to Oxford to do his DPhil in the Department of Engineering on automated understanding of images (‘Computer Vision’). After leaving Oxford, Phil joined Microsoft Research, working there for several years both in Seattle and then later at their research laboratory in Cambridge (England). He then moved to Oxford Brookes to establish a new research group in Computer Vision that won several academic and industrial awards for its output before returning to Oxford University’s Department of Engineering as University Research Professor.
In 2007 Phil was made a Wolfson Research Merit Award Holder. He was elected Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (FREng) in 2019, and Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) in 2021 for contributions to computer vision. In 2021 he was made Turing AI world leading researcher fellow.
