Sam Anthony is the co-founder and CTO of Perceptive Automata. While pursuing his Ph.D. in psychology, Sam developed the methods that underlie Perceptive Automata’s ground-breaking human understanding technology at the Vision Science Laboratory at Harvard University. Over the course of Sam’s research, he discovered a new approach to the design and training of machine learning algorithms which leverages the techniques of behavioral science to solve previously unsolvable problems in machine intelligence. Before beginning his Ph.D. program Sam worked for ten years leading software engineering teams in Boston and Silicon Valley. With Perceptive Automata, he is combining his field-leading research with his industry experience to solve problems that are vital to the success of automated vehicles.
