Stuff I know about
I’m not exactly a “machine learning person”, but I know how to hang out with them. I’ve led applied ML projects in conservation technology, gesture recognition, health and fitness devices, brain-computer interfaces, and computer music.
I’m not exactly an “environmental scientist” but I know how to hang out with them. I run the AI for Earth program at Microsoft, and I work on using computer vision to accelerate biodiversity surveys (i.e., to save ecologists time).
I’m not exactly an “electrical engineer” (the “building stuff” kind or the “signal processing” kind), but I know how to hang out with them (both kinds). I’ve led hardware prototyping and DSP projects in physiological signal analysis, natural input, and computer music. I get sad if I go more than a few weeks without soldering anything.
I’m not exactly a “doctor”, but I know how to hang out with them. My undergraduate degree was in neurobiology, and since then I’ve worked closely with clinicians on projects in ambulatory health monitoring, surgical simulation, neural interfaces, and patient-friendly medical informatics.
In case what I do is still hazy, Songsmith helped me write a song about it:
