Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi everyone! I'm Brian. I grew up in sunny California and now am a first-year MD/PhD student at Harvard Medical School and MIT. Previously I studied computer science and biology at Stanford. I love using data visualization and cutting edge tools to reveal unexpected things about sports, finance and even my own text message history.

C10873: Building a Dream Machine: A Workshop on Computer Vision and Deep Learning in Splash 2016 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2016)
Driving automatically, beating the best Go player in the world, and helping to detect and treat cancer: in recent years, computers have begun to match and even surpass human visual capabilities. Equipped with the exciting ability to see and process images, computers naturally acquire the ability to dream as well. In this interactive workshop, we will discuss cutting-edge methods that programmers use to teach computers how to understand images and video. We will then build our own neural networks using open-source Google tools and explore their properties in detail to help you understand exactly how they work. Surprisingly, we'll need very little math to get to this point! Then, we'll finish up the class by learning how to use these tools to let a computer dream. Note: computers will be provided for this workshop.
