Experience in leading challenging technical projects. Specialties: Machine learning, Deep learning, Optimization, Probabilistic models, Computer vision, Computer graphics, Probabilistic Robotics, Distributed systems, Mapreduce, Flume.Director of Perception @ From December 2015 to Present (1 month) Senior Staff Engineer @ Continue managing a 9 person team working on large scale image annotation and object detection. From November 2015 to December 2015 (2 months) Staff Engineer @ Technical lead and manager (since 2013) of the Total Recall team, which specialized in classification and annotation in images using deep neural networks. Our team contributed two of the key computer vision technologies at Google: the Inception neural network architecture and the Multibox object detection system. On the strength of these technologies, we won the prestigious 2014 Imagenet Classification and Detection challenges. Jointly with the ICA team, we launched the latest 4 generations of image annotation backends that power the image search and organization functionality of the Google Photos app. We developed a novel large scale object localization system that provides bounding boxes for thousands of objects in personal photos and deployed two generations of this system to production.
