Portrait of Sebastian Tschiatschek

Sebastian Tschiatschek



I am a researcher at Microsoft Research in Cambridge, UK. My research focuses on developing novel algorithms and models for artificial intelligence and machine learning applications.

My current research interest are:

Deep learning of structured models
Inference aware model design and model estimation
High-order probabilistic models (based on submodularity)

Before joining Microsoft Research I was a postdoc in the Learning and Adaptive Systems Group at ETH Zurich led by Prof. Andreas Krause. Before joining ETH, I received a PhD from Graz University of Technology under supervision of Prof. Franz Pernkopf at the Signal and Speech Processing Laboratory.
