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 has been invited professor at Tohoku University and Tohoku Gakuin University in Sendai (Miyagi, Japan) in 2013 and 2014 respectively. He is now President & Chief Scientist at KyberVision Japan LLC in Sendai.

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):
