Jerone is a research scientist and contributes to the Sony AI Gastronomy and AI Ethics flagship projects. His research interests and expertise span computer vision and deep learning, in particular self-supervised anomaly detection, transfer learning, and adversarial machine learning. Prior to joining Sony, Jerone received an MSci in mathematics from King’s College London, which he followed with an EPSRC-funded MRes and Ph.D. in computer science at University College London (UCL). Subsequently, Jerone was awarded a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship, a British Science Association Media Fellowship with BBC Future, and a Marie Skłodowska-Curie RISE grant. While at UCL, Jerone also spent time as a Visiting Researcher at the National Institute of Informatics (Tokyo) and Telefónica Research (Barcelona).
“As an avid cook, I was thrilled to become a part of the Gastronomy team, where I hope to contribute to the creation of AI tools that help reveal memorable and aesthetically pleasing visual content. I admire and share as a priority Sony AI’s commitment to examining the scientific and social impacts of AI algorithms. In my AI ethics role, I am currently developing auditing tools that can be used to assess the visual diversity of datasets. Through this work, I hope to ensure that datasets accurately represent the visual diversity that exists within and across all demographic groups.”
