What I Do

I practice the art & science of machine learning systems for practical language problems. At Google, I worked on search ranking, spelling correction & document classification.

Recently, I've built systems that turn live sports play-by-play and Twitter data into readable stories & timelines.


I build systems for specific, practical AI, usually dealing with language. That might be classification, text parsing or text generation.

What I'm Looking For

Looking for a partner for my automated sports writing systems. Ready to take on the Turing test for sports fans, with insights generation from structured data and live Twitter data.
