Frederic joined as a Research Engineer in July 2015. Prior to DeepMind, he was a research engineer at the Foundry, a VFX software company. Frederic’s job is to accelerate research, and take the lead on the engineering side of projects. He mainly focuses on generative models, which is a family of models belonging to the field of unsupervised learning. He describes his job as trying to teach a computer to process data like the human brain: "To dream and imagine things that it has never seen before. One way to achieve this is to show the computer a lot of data and let it figure out why things look like they do.” Frederic joined DeepMind to be a part of our exciting and challenging mission to solve intelligence. His favourite DeepMind memory was watching the AlphaGo vs Lee Sedol match: “The suspense and atmosphere in the office was amazing.”
