Cosmin Stamate

CTO, Xsure

Cosmin is CTO at Xsure ( also in charge of the machine learning division. He has a MSc inIntelligent Technologies from Birkbeck, University of London where he took aparticular interest in artificial neural networks, evolutionary algorithms andtransfer learning between heterogeneous tasks using artificial neural networks.Some of his industry roles include data analyst (on a consulting basis) forTesco and Schroders.

Besides Xsure,he is also working towards finishing his PhD, which bridges the Department ofComputer Science and the Department of Psychological Sciences at Birkbeck; thePhD is focused on developing novel deep learning algorithms that model specificcognitive and behavioural processes.

Most of his day to day research gravitates around transfer learning in deepneural networks and evolutionary strategies, both taking inspiration fromcognitive and behavioural genetics
