Co-Host of Increments
I’m currently a Ph.D student at the University of British Columbia where I focus on machine learning, probabilistic programming, bayesian inference and other topics included under the umbrella term "artificial intelligence." I'm also interested on the applied side of machine learning, and have worked on computer vision, natural language processing for biomedical applications, and particle physics in my masters and undergraduate days.
Here, however, I try to avoid all the technical mumbo-jumbo and just shoot the s*** with my good buddy, and childhood friend, Ben Chugg. Some philosopher we never talk about once said "because knowledge is an adventure of ideas", and that's our only goal with the podcast - to enjoy the adventure.
