大家好,我是依庄防(来自中国云南西双版纳,是少数民族-傣族),我现在是Development Seed的机器学习算法工程师。Development Seed是一个致力于利用开源、遥感、地理信息和机器学习回馈社会、建设美好社区和家园的公司。我们的主要客户是美国航天航空局、世界银行,还有其他非常多的环保组织和人道主义组织。

我的博士学位授予单位是中国科学院,研究方向是生态经济学。在成为机器学习工程师之前,我在世界农用林业中心和昆明植物研究所从事研究工作。到目前为止发表的大小科研论文为21篇。我现在的工作主要偏向于利用深度学习或者其他机器学习做图像识别,分类,语义分割等等。

从一名科研工作者转到工程师最主要的动力来自于,其事我个人比起发表科研论文来还是更为看重我所做的工作怎么样变成人们日常工作学习和生活中能够使用的工具,并且这些工具能够帮助使用者做更棒的决策。
