I am a researcher/engineer at Symbio Robotics, bringing modern perception to industrial robots.
Before that, I completed a PhD at UC Berkeley, working on computer vision and advised by Trevor Darrell.
Before 2010, I was at Carnegie Mellon, studying Computer Science, Physics, and Mathematics.
I care about recognition: algorithms that learn to decode perceptual input into useful information.
We've figured out how to build powerful supervised recognition machines, and now it's time to bring that technology to manipulation of the physical world.
I obsess about having the most powerful tools for research and engineering; I'm a developer of Caffe.
