Starting the topic for Group 49 to share issues/tips/etc.
Let’s introduce ourselves!
My quick background:
-Georgia Tech Bachelors in ME (1998)
-Stanford Masters & PhD in ME (2000, 2004)
I focused on robotics, neuroscience, & some machine learning.
For my career, I’ve worked on consumer products, solar, and (of course) robotics!
Currently I’m doing (a little) machine learning consulting and looking for the right long-term ML/robotics role.
On the fun side, I like car racing (autocross) and saltwater aquariums (and using fast.ai to tell my fish apart).
Thanks Sean for starting this!
Berkeley Physics Undergrad (2007)
Riverside Physics PhD in Particle Physics, spent a year at CERN (2013)
Currently a Data Scientist in cybersecurity at Proofpoint. Excited to learn about cutting edge deep-learning tools!
Great idea! My background is originally in public health, where I worked in research on infectious diseases surveillance for a number of years, before changing careers into analytics and data science. I currently work in product analytics at Pinterest.
Outside of work, one of my favorite activities is baking-- this past week, I used what we’ve learned so far to build a classifier that identifies different types of pastries
