About Me

As an explanation for why there have been no posts in a long time, I’m now working on the Growth and Engagement team at Facebook. I’m on a small subteam that is tasked with creating metrics to enable us to directly compare and contrast user experience across the various platforms, such as web and mobile. Facebook has over 1B active users, and relies heavily on machine learning for a wide variety of tasks. Thus, for someone interested in ubiquitous machine learning (e.g., me), I can’t think of a better place to be. It’s a lot of fun, but has also kept me extremely busy.


First Post

Welcome to my blog. I’ve thought about blogging for a long time, have even started a few, but this time I’m going to force myself to blog. I find that if I don’t write much for a while, I get much worse at writing. Makes sense. So to force myself to keep up my writing chops, I’m going to maintain this blog, and do my best to ensure that it doesn’t get stale.

The real spark that started me on this renewed path to blogging is a cool little project that I’ve been working on in the minimal spare time I’ve had during the IJCAI, ICML, and ECML submission blitz. So, without further ado, I’ll start on a post that might actually interest others.
