His AI research experience spans NLP and includes work on clinical notes de-identification, medical concept embeddings (NIPS 2017 ML4HC workshop) as well as robotics R&D conducted as an intern in the radar perception group at Uber ATG. He also has a track record of combining visionary leadership and technical skills by notably co-founding then leading the machine intelligence community for 1.5 years. All these experiences help him in his current role as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Sela Labs, an 8 person startup working on using chatbots, satellite images, financial transactions to foster transparency and accountability in the international development sector. A fun fact is that he served as DJ for a NIPS 2017 party where he got Yann LeCun and Jeff Dean dancing to West African music.
