I began my journey from a homeless shelter
It was there that I befriended another resident recovering from a stroke. Because neither of us had any resources (and because we both had plenty of time) I began teaching myself TensorFlow.js to see if there was a way to use the web handsfree.
That’s when I discovered my passion for Computer Vision
What I quickly realized however was that the web is a huge place, and that the number of ways that you can interact with it is nearly as large.
There’s clicking. There’s typing. Dragging, scrolling, touching, and gesturing.
So I developed a library called Handsfree.js to help me and others quickly build out handsfree interfaces for the web.
That’s how I received a Glitch Sponsorship!
And a School of AI Fellowship!
And a residency at Carnegie Mellon!
But my journey’s only just begun, and now I’d like to join your team 👋
When I first began on this journey, I had no idea that I would get so invested in:
- Machine learning frameworks like TensorFlow.js and OpenCV
- RoboDK and hands-on experience with Universal Robots
