Scientific advisors

Peter Horvath, PhD

Péter is a Finnish Distinguished Professor Fellow at FIMM Helsinki and the Director of Institute of Biochemistry at the Biological Research Centre in Szeged, Hungary. He is a distinguished scientist, with a drive to revolutionize machine learning with crowdsourcing.

Our goal is to

  1. Connect the amazing AI talent with the industry through exciting problems. We want to empower everyone to work in AI and enable every community to leverage state of the art algorithms.
  2. Create the ultimate competitive crowdsourcing AI platform. At telesto.ai, competitors are rewarded frequently and organizers are guaranteed to have an algorithm that is constantly improving.
  3. Aim for production, not proof of concept. Frequent faults during deployment? Surprising edge cases? Our competitions are dynamic: competitors are able to address these issues as soon as they surface.
  4. Support the AI community and open source software. We think that the current technology boom in AI is made available by amazing people such as researchers and open source software contributors. We would like to give back to them.
