Deploying Generative Adversarial Neural Networks to the Street Signage of Ed Ruscha's Iconic Sunset Strip Photography

StyleGAN, Tensorflow, RunwayML

For this project, created for my final submission for a machine learning course I took at Harvard during graduate school, applied a series of generative adversarial neural networks to image datasets of Ed Ruscha’s iconic photographic series of Sunset Strip which span his streetscape photos from 1960-2007. Using the RunwayML platform, these image datasets used together with the ML models built into RunwayML generated a series of ‘feverish machine hallucinations’ depicting StyleGAN's reading/subsequent mimicking of Sunset Strip billboard text. Many thanks The Getty Image Archive, Stamen’s Shading Sunset image data portal, the RunwayML platform, and Ed Ruscha’s photographic work whose collaboration on this project allowed my final project for this class, DES3505: Machine and Image Processing to come to life.

SpaceNet.ai - Image Segmentation for Satellite Imagery Challenge

Program Management

I helped organize as part of my part-time work during graduate school, at Maxar, the SpaceNet.ai Challenge; a geospatial machine learning hackathon. SpaceNet delivers access to high-quality geospatial data for developers, researchers, and startups. Before SpaceNet, computer vision researchers had minimal options to obtain free, precision-labeled, and high-resolution satellite imagery. SpaceNet focuses on four open source key pillars: data, challenges, algorithms, and tools.

Maxar's Deepcore - Linux-System Based Object Detection Model Experiments

Python, Linux-based operating systems

Developed a writeup developed on behalf of Maxar to elucidate how Maxar’s Deepcore.io platform machine learning capabilities could be used on used on behalf of the SpaceNet.ai Challenge. SpaceNet.ai baseline results run via DeepCore’s OpenSpaceNet platform and results were tested for validation and inference.

ML for Natural Language Processing - Geoparsing Location Names from Taylor Swift & Drake Lyrics

Python, Mapbox, Genius Lyrics API. mordecai ML Python library 

For my final project in Harvard course CS6483 I built a geographic visualization using a Natural Language Processing tool, Mordecai geoparser to detect every geographic place name ever mentioned in a Drake or Taylor Swift song. Using the Genius Lyric API, the geoparser ML model mordecai was applied to the entire cannon of Drake and Taylor Swift’s song archive.

New Zealand Takiwaehere Geospatial ML Hackathon

Program Management

As part of my professional work part-time at Maxar I helped organize and collate ML models and satellite imagery for the MBIE's Takiwaehere Geospatial Hackathon. The Hackathon took place over the weekend of 17-18 April, 2021 and was attended by 230 students across 68 teams at universities throughout New Zealand centered on geospatial machine learning exercises.
