I’m Kris. I prototype and build machine learning models, particularly deep learning models. Right now, I’m participating in a a fellowship at fellowship.ai, contributing to a computer vision product.
My working style:
I prototype fast, but go over details before presenting my work.
I prefer to Pytorch over Tensorflow, Python over R (except for plotting).
I use (maybe over-use) Jupyter notebooks - a great tool for prototyping.
I like to understand models from the ground up. I almost never build anything from just basic matrix (tensor) operations, but I like to know that I could, if needed to.
Before doing machine learning, I worked in insurance as an actuary. Then, two years ago, I decided to take a sabbatical. I travelled to Asia, trained in a kung fu school, meditated in a Thai monastery, and fell in love. When I came back to London, I decided to transition into ML.
I will finish my current fellowship at the end of April. If you’re in London and are looking for a ML engineer, feel free to reach out (email@example.com).
