I also frequently use
machine learning techniques, such as convolutional neural networks. I gave a talk at RailsConf 2012 about machine learning and originally studied it
in graduate school.
while doing my Masters research at Georgia Tech. My research focused on
artificial intelligence. Specifically, I researched TTD-MDPs, a technique for generating a distribution of trajectories through a Markov Decision Process.
With my co-authors I published a couple of
I also researched
stochastic optimization for motion control of high degree-of-freedom manipulators, like octopus arms and elephant trunks (you can read my paper about it),
and machine learning in web applications.
Prior to Georgia Tech, I graduated from Haverford College with a BS in
Physics and a concentration in Computational Science, which focused on
Physics Education. This culminated in the development of three educational physics applets
that are featured in the Physics textbook Waves and Oscillations: A Prelude to Quantum Mechanics by Walter Smith.
Before that, I developed a low-cost, distributed data-processing cluster to search for radio pulsar signals.
