Wojciech Marian Czarnecki

Machine Learning Scientist

I am currently a Research Engineer at Google DeepMind as well as Research and Teaching assistant at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland. In my PhD thesis entitled "Renyi's quadratic entropy in classification", under the supervision of prof. Jacek Tabor, I showed how one can exploit particular properties of this non-classical entropy measure to build a discriminative models. This led to the construction of a model called Multithreshold Entropy Linear Classifier (MELC), if you are interested in my research please take a look at my research page and feel free to contact me with any questions.

As one can see my main research interests are entropic models in machine learning as well as applications in cheminformatics domain. Together with a team from Institute of Pharmacology, Polish Academy of Sciences, we developed some novel methods for ligand-based virtual screening.

I am also a member of Group of Machine Learning Research (GMUM).
