“As a French person, I was well aware of the reputation of CentraleSupélec. It is one of the best schools in France. Furthermore, the description of the course interested me a lot: Most schools that have AI programs are focused on Machine and Deep Learning but AI is not only about that. There are plenty of issues that exist in AI that Deep Learning would not solve. I would describe the MSc AI of CentraleSupélec as:

  • Demanding: the program is short and intense
  • Gobal: we study a lot of different fields in depth
  • Balanced: we did both research opportunities and application.”

Louis de Vitry, Co-founder of Kanop

Thomas Cordier has an engineering degree from ENSIL-ENSCI and is a PhD student at CentraleSupélec’s MICS Lab.

He researches the control of neural networks by disentangling their representations. The internal representations of a network should be aligned with the factors of variations of the input data.

At the crossroads of predictive and generative models, he tries to incorporate inductive bias in the model to encode semantic contents to enforce the interpretability and performance in deep learning.
