Michael Guerzhoy

Senior Data Scientist


I hold a B.Sc. in Math, Computer Science, and Statistics, an M.Sc. in Computer Science and an M.Sc. in Statistics, all from the University of Toronto. I worked on computer vision and machine learning algorithm development at Epson Canada and at Inria (the French Institute for Research in Computer Science) in Grenoble, France. I occasionally take on data science consulting clients. I taught machine learning, programming, and statistics at the University of Toronto since 2009.
I was lucky to work on deep neural networks before they got really hot. Back in 2005, I made an NN-based image orientation system that Epson’s scanners still use. I am the first author of 3 US patents and published 8 papers. I won the Best Paper Award at the Canadian Conference on Artificial Intelligence for one of my papers. I enjoy teaching, and won the Computer Science Student Union Award for Excellence in Teaching for my Introduction to Neural Networks and Machine Learning class.
