Robin Champenois

I grew up between snow and sun, in Ubaye Valley, in the heart of Southern Alps (France).

After studying computer science and mathematics at the École Normale Supérieure (Paris), where I specialised in computer vision and artificial intelligence, I discovered the world of start-ups and innovation through several internships, and a pre-doctoral year. In parallel to my studies, I developed my own artistic practice – partly shown on this website – and contributed to several exhibitions and student art festivals.

It is in the search for a sensitive practice of AI that my PhD took shape, in which I explore the irrational territories of machines as well as of our minds, weaving links between computer science, art history, cognitive sciences, philosophy and psychoanalysis.
