Clément Walter graduated from Mines ParisTech in 2013, majoring in applied probabilities. Strongly influenced by the school’s motto “theory and practice”, he pursued his studies with a PhD in Computer Sciences (applied to nuclear safety). He received a prize and several international scholarships for his academic work. In the meantime, he founded Calchemise, a menswear brand. After defending his PhD in 2016 selling Calchemise in 2017, he started working for Sicara to resolve practical business problems with state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms. Clément is currently working on the development of an automated canteen cash desk system based on computer vision algorithms. A first pilot has been released, which can currently bill 70% of the served meal trays.
