Sam Anthony


Sam Anthony is a co-founder and CTO of Perceptive Automata. Sam developed the methods that underlie Perceptive Automata’s ground-breaking human understanding technology during his Ph.D work at the Vision Science Laboratory at Harvard University. In 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.

Sam holds a B.S. in Cognitive Science with a specialization in Computation from the University of California San Diego and a Ph.D. in Cognition, Brain, and Behavior from Harvard University.
