to an AWS S3 instance. The framework processed ~16,000 videos, each with clear speech segments and faces
• Assigned to research team under the speech lead based on video scraping framework
• Built an emotion classification model using the video data set together with speech lead. Explored several deep
convolutional neural network architectures (e.g., MFCCs) and ultimately selected an end-to-end approach despite
model training challenges
• Moved from Boston to New York to finish a laughter regression model using the emotion classification model
• Created real time web demo for model; despite Java script constraints, achieved low latency by enabling multiple
worker threads and the gpu
• Laughter model was featured at MIT Media Lab’s 2017 Emotion AI summit, was picked up by TechCrunch and NPR, and
will result in a patent with me as a named inventor
