I had the pleasure of presenting ‘Modern Agile for Machine Learning’ at Toronto Machine Learning Micro-Summit Series to 100+ industry Machine Learning practitioners. The talk was based off my personal experiences in applying Extreme Programming practices for enterprise ML projects at Dessa.
I had the pleasure of presenting the state-of-the-art NLP model, Google BERT, at the Toronto Deep Learning Series (TDLS) meetup. This video has 78000+ views as of Sep 2021, and is the top viewed lecture of TDLS (now called AISC).
At ZeroGravityLabs, Taraneh Khazaei and I co-authored a fantastic blog post that details resolutions of common Spark performance issues. It was featured on the Roaring Elephant - Bite-Sized Big Data podcast.
HackOn(Data), Toronto’s very own data hackathon in the heart of downtown, is back for 2017!
At HackOn(Data) last year, I learned a lot, had lots of fun, and made industry connections that landed me and my teammate great summer internships (my blog post). This year I plan on volunteering for HackOn(Data) 2017.
