Prof. Stephen Roberts

Stephen Roberts is Professor of Machine Learning in Information Engineering at the University of Oxford. Stephen’s interests lie in methods for intelligent data analysis in complex problems, especially those in which noise and uncertainty abound. He has successfully applied these approaches to a wide range of problem domains including astronomy, biology, finance, sensor networks, control and system monitoring. His current major interests include the application of intelligent data analysis to huge astrophysical data sets (for discovering exo-planets, pulsars and cosmological models), biodiversity monitoring (for detecting changes in ecology and spread of disease), smart networks (for reducing energy consumption and impact), sensor networks (to better acquire and model complex events) and finance (to provide timeseries and point process models and aggregate large numbers of information streams).
