Virginie Mathivet

AWS Machine Learning Hero

 Virginie Mathivet, AI PhD and CEO at Hemelopse

 Lyon, France

 Hero since 2021

After earning a PhD on Neural Networks and Reinforcement Learning (when it was not so cool), Virginie taught AI for over 10 years to masters students. Her taste for vulgarization also led her to write her first book.

From 2017 to 2022, she established and led the Data Department at an IT firm, managing data initiatives. In 2023, she founded Hemelopse (pronounced MLOps), a consultancy dedicated to assisting businesses in formulating and executing their AI strategies.

Virginie regularly participates in conferences and writes books and articles, both for the public (introduction to AI) and for an informed audience (technical subjects). She also campaigns for a better visibility of women in the digital industry and for diversity in data professions. Her favorite cloud service? Amazon SageMaker of course!
