Laurent BRISSON received a Ph.D degree in Computer Science from UNSA (Université Nice Sophia-Antipolis, France) in 2006 and his Master Degree (DEA Informatique, UNSA) in 2003. During his Ph.D he worked on the integration of expert knowledge in data mining processes in order to extract relevant (from human point of view) information.
Since 2007, he has been Associate Professor at TELECOM Bretagne (France), a prestigious french graduate engineering school and international research center in the field of information technologies.
One of his main research interests is related to the use of expert knowledge to improve the relevance (from a human perspective) of information extracted from large data. He has worked to define methods to extract relevant patterns in gene expression data, to build risk scores (in the fields of flood prediction or breast cancer prevention) and to extract relevant opinions from texts in natural language.
