My next steps

    In November I quit my job as the tech lead of the machine learning team at Archive360. Starting December 1st I am looking to provide my services as a machine learning consultant.

    My next steps

    Consulting is something I have dreamed of for a long time. I have done a little bit in the past, on the side, but now the time has come to pursue this full time.

    I have used machine learning to solve a large variety of problems such as:

    • text recognition (OCR) from receipts
    • anomaly detection on monitoring data
    • understanding how people use calendar software
    • room booking recommendations
    • chatbots
    • real time surveillance video analysis
    • time series forecasting
    • personally identifiable information (PII) detection

    So if you have a hairy machine learning problem and you need advice on how to move forward, I can help you find the best way.

    If you are a software company that wants to start developing machine learning projects, I can provide training for your team so that they can develop these projects. I can also give presentations and explain to managers and executives how machine learning projects are developed, what can be done with it (it's not a silver bullet that will solve all known problems) and how ML projects are different from traditional software projects, both during development and in deployment.

    If you are a company that wants to know if machine learning is the right solution for a problem you have, such as automating a process that currently is very labor intensive, I can help you make this decision and develop a strategy for making the transition towards automation.

    Are you a company that is looking to acquire a machine learning solution and you want some independent appraisal of the cost, duration and feasibility of the project? I can help you with this as well.

    So if you need a machine learning advisor, consultant or trainer, feel free to reach out to me.
