My research interests include machine learning and deep learning architectures, with an emphasis on creative applications.

I also work as a musician. I teach and supervise students at all levels.


Brief Biography

Sageev Oore received his MSc and PhD in Computer Science from the University of Toronto, under the supervision of Geoffrey Hinton. His PhD research, in which he developed a high-degree-of-freedom interface for manipulating a virtual puppet, was also co-supervised by Demetri Terzopoulos. His undergraduate degree was in Mathematics & Computer Science from Dalhousie University. As a musician, Sageev embraces a wide range of influences: in his first appearance with Symphony Nova Scotia he performed a Mozart piano concerto, and in his most recent appearance with them, he performed as a member of multiple-ECMA winning jazz/world music group Gypsophilia, an event for which he also wrote and arranged an original klezmer-influenced score that was premiered by the symphony together with the 7-piece ensemble. Together with his brother Dani Oore, and with CBC Radio, Dani and Sageev co-produced/co-composed/co-performed a duo instrumental CD, ``Radical Cycle’’, combining classical art songs with improvisation, nominated for a 2013 ECMA for Best Classical Recording, reviewed as "..full of beauty, daring and humour, inspired by themes plucked from the realm of dreams, where anything can happen.."
