Projects

Updated: April 24, 2016.

In Development

Currently I'm very focused on leading an engineering team at Instacart, so I'm not building anything big on the side right now.

I'm interested in a few areas though:

  • Apps for virtual and augmented reality. I think augmented reality will succeed the smart phone as the next step in personal computing and consumer hardware.
  • Creating better governments. We have the tools now to do direct democracy, why aren't we doing it?
  • Deep learning. The results of Recurrent and Convolutional Neural Networks are very impressive.
