Emile Contal

CTO & Co-Founder


Emile completed his PhD in Statistical Learning in 2017 from ENS Paris-Saclay, the most prestigious French university for Applied Mathematics. Emile has more than 6 internal publications and the impact of his research is witnessed by numerous citations from prestigious conferences on Machine Learning and many other scientific and technical industries. The algorithms he invented are now implemented in several software libraries used by thousands. Rather than pursue a Post-Doctorate at Oxford University, Emile chose to focus entirely on building Crossing Minds and Hai.
