George Cushen

A Data Scientist & Product Enthusiast

Hey, I’m George!

I am a Data Scientist at Farfetch, pursuing my vision of reimagining retail to create a smart and personalized shopping experience. I focus on the intersection of machine learning and knowledge representation (knowledge graphs) to build novel solutions that can improve the customer search and browsing experience.

Previously, my lifelong fascination with artificial intelligence and fashion led me to become an innovator in research on computer vision for visual clothing search and augmented reality fitting room on mobile devices.

I am actively contributing to open source projects, and methods that I implemented are now used for popular mobile apps. In my spare time, I enjoy giving seminars on the practical applications of data science and machine learning.
