Remi Desmartin

Research Fellow

Remi is a PhD student at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, whose main research interest is the formal verification of neural networks. He previously completed an MSc in Data Science, where his dissertation focused on the application of Imandra to neural network verification. He is interested in various aspects of artificial intelligence, from the maths behind different types of AI systems to the ethical questions it poses and its exploration in works of science fiction.

John Hester

Research & Engineering

John is an R&D engineer with a PhD in mathematics from the University of Florida. During his PhD, he focused on automated theorem proving and logic. He also conducted research into combing formal systems for automated reasoning in new ways and automated axiom generation. All of the projects required a large amount of implementation work. Outside of the automated reasoning and intelligence world, John is a classical guitar player and enjoys martial arts.
