Team

Synthesia was founded by a team of researchers and entrepreneurs from UCL, Stanford, TUM and Cambridge. During the last year we’ve made several breakthroughs in the fields of vision, graphics and deep learning to be able to achieve photorealistic video synthesis.

We are passionate about pushing frontier research into products that make a difference for content creators all over the world.
