Jon Oberlander 1962-2017
It is with immense sadness that we have learned of the passing of our dear colleague, Jon Oberlander.
The following article was taken from the School of Informatics website but the sentiments are shared with everyone at the College of Science and Engineering.
The School stopped in its tracks when the news of Jon's passing reached us. He was a driving force behind the Bayes Centre, a strong leader for everyone in the Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation, an inspiring figure for all of us in the School of Informatics, and a visionary who promoted science engagement with non-scientific audiences. An excellent teacher and mentor to all students.
We will all miss him.
Please respect Jon's family's request for privacy at this difficult time.
Jon Oberlander FRSE was Professor of Epistemics at the School of Informatics, Director of Institute for Language, Cognition and Computation, Director of the Bayes Centre (formerly Data Technology Institute) and Assistant Principal Data Technology.
