Hello! I’m a machine learning engineer 👨🔬, roboticist 👨🏭, and entreprenuer 👨💼 at my startup, Limboid LLC, where I work to develop artificial general intelligence (🖥️+🧠) and affordable humanoid robots (🤖−💲). During the day, I work as a software engineer 🧑💻 at Motio Inc. I just graduated 👨🎓🎉 from the University of Texas at Arlington with my bachelor’s degree in computer science. I 💙 open source work, artificial intelligence, and robotics. When I’m not interacting with artificial agents, you’ll find me working with real people. I hope that includes you 📫
Focus StatementThe endless evolution of artificial intelligence (AI) penetrates nearly every research discipline, engineering domain, and human endeavor: expert systems automate innumerably-many business processes; large language models generate indistinguishably-plausible written content; deep generative models produce photorealistic images; reinforcement learning agents have even gone on to achieve superhuman-level performance in strategic action... more ››
BackgroundMy family places strong value on learning, kindness, and integrity. My dad spent much of my childhood as a systems engineer at Microsoft, and my mom, as a minister of Jehovah’s Witnesses.1 Passing their values on, my siblings and I enjoyed regular visits to the... more ››
What makes AI so interesting?What makes it not interesting? The “thinking machine” drean has fascinated philosophers, machinists, and scientists for centuries. While there are many interpretations of the scope and focus of “artificial intelligence”, I take it to denote “the science and engineering of making intelligent machines”.1 A definitive... more ››
Describe your greatest engineering accomplishmentI don’t have a great definition for “great” ;-), but here are some accomplishments I am especially proud of:
- The Copyright Calculator. Developing this application was one of the most involved projects of my 9th grade given the resources and skills at my disposal. At the time, I...
Relate a setback you've overcomeGetting up after my DIY’ed Cookie Cutter CNC EDM head shorted out the lab in 9th grade in front of my entire class, teacher, and principal was probably the hardest, most embarassing setback I’ve faced. I’d spent dozens of hours, written hundreds of lines of code, learned so... more ››
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Honestly, I don’t know! I try to take one day at a time so I can focus my energy. Currently, I hope to be deploying humanoid robots across the world by then, but whatever circumstances come, I aim for an action-oriented life.
