Frederic joined as a Research Engineer in July 2015. Prior to DeepMind, he was a research engineer at the Foundry, a VFX software company. Frederic’s job is to accelerate research, and take the lead on the engineering side of projects. He mainly focuses on generative models, which is a family of models belonging to the field of unsupervised learning. He describes his job as trying to teach a computer to process data like the human brain: "To dream and imagine things that it has never seen before. One way to achieve this is to show the computer a lot of data and let it figure out why things look like they do.” Frederic joined DeepMind to be a part of our exciting and challenging mission to solve intelligence. His favourite DeepMind memory was watching the AlphaGo vs Lee Sedol match: “The suspense and atmosphere in the office was amazing.”
When studying at higher levels of school and throughout college, you will likely be asked to prepare research papers. A research paper can be used for exploring and identifying scientific, technical and social issues. If it's your first time writing a research paper, it may seem daunting, but with good organization and focus of mind, you can make the process easier on yourself. Writing a research paper involves four main stages: choosing a topic, researching your topic, making an outline, and doing the actual writing. The paper won't write itself, but by planning and preparing well, the writing practically falls into place. Also, try to avoid plagiarism.
