George Cushen

Data Science Leader, PhD

Hey, I’m George!

I’m a data science leader, researcher, and former electronic engineer.

I am currently Head of Data Science at Bark, defining the future of data-driven marketplaces - from hyper-personalisation driving the customer experience to marketing and growth.

Previously, my lifelong fascination with artificial intelligence and fashion led me to become an innovator in research on machine learning 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.
