George Kour

Machine Learning Researcher

IBM Research Lab, University of Haifa

I hold a bachelor degree in computer engineering from the Technion - Institute of Technology. I have completed my masters degree in computer engineering in the Tel-Aviv University, under the supervision of Prof. Dana Ron and Dr. Raid Saabni . My thesis focused on online handwriting recognition in the Arabic language.

Currently I am a member of the Machine Learning Technologies Group at the IBM research lab in Haifa and a Ph.D candidate in the Sagol department of neurobiology in the Haifa University.

In my Ph.D. research under the supervision of Dr. Genela Morris, I investigate dimensionality reduction processes and state representation mechanisms in the brain.

I am interested in Learning mechanisms, both artificial and natural.
