Dr. William H.A. Beaudot founded KyberVision in late 2003 in Montreal, Canada. Graduated in Computer Science from the University Joseph Fourier of Grenoble (France) and titular of a Ph.D. from the "Institut National Polytechnique" of Grenoble, Dr. Beaudot is an expert in artificial and biological vision.

After getting a Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1994, he joined the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM SA, Neuchâtel, Switzerland) as a R&D Engineer in the field of neuromorphic systems until 1997. Dr. Beaudot then pursued his career as a Post-Doctoral research fellow from 1997 to 2001, and as a Research Associate from 2001 to 2003 at McGill University (Montréal, Canada) in the field of visual psychophysics and the computational modeling of the human vision system.

He is now President & Chief Scientist at KyberVision Japan LLC in Sendai (Miyagi, Japan).

Dr. Beaudot has presented his research works in numerous international conferences, and published in renowned scientific journals. Here is a selection of his publications (follow this link for a comprehensive list):
