Matthieu Cord

Professor at Sorbonne University, (ex UPMC, ex Paris 6, ex …)

Researcher in the MLIA team of the LIP6 lab

IUF honorary member (Promo Junior 2009), Scientific advisor at the French National Research Agency ANR for Artificial Intelligence (2017-2018), Project manager at CNRS (INS2I) (2015-2017)

My research interests include: Image Processing, Computer Vision, Deep Learning, Pattern Recognition, Machine Learning for Multimedia and Computational Cooking.


Crazy about cooking, ready to cook anywhere, anything, even my computer. Currently cooking on ANR VISIIR PROJECT for Web food recipe filtering, and searching.
