I "lead" research and development in areas of AI that span computer vision and machine learning topics. I have particularly worked in the area of computer vision since grad school, and is passionate about the advances of computer vision in everyday products. As someone used to say, "We believe that people with passion can change the world for the better". I also quite believe that a tech lead or manager must be himself/herself a great individual contributor. In my time working, I have encounter some truly intelligent engineers and it was always a great experience interacting with them in front of a whiteboard. To these folks, thank you, I have learn so much.
