Matthieu Cord

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

Researcher in the MLIA team (on the move to join ISIR)

Part-time principal scientist at

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, Machine Learning , Deep Learning, Pattern Recognition, Artificial Intelligence, Multimedia, 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.
