Philip Osborne

University of Manchester 

Philip is a doctoral student currently studying Artificial Intelligence at the University of Manchester with a Masters Degree in Data Science and Bachelors Degree in Mathematics. The primary focus of his research relates to the application of Reinforcement Learning to Real-World Tasks with the integration of Natural Language.

Philip first applied Reinforcement Learning in a commercial environment with his Master's dissertation to recommend the order and design of data visualisations for client presentations within an insurance consulting business.

Since then, he has demonstrated some of his other ideas publicly including meal planning and recommending strategy decisions within a popular video game. The public demonstrations have gained notoriety within the data science community, including two separate monetary awards from Kaggle (Google) for their novelty, and has put him at the forefront of the field.
