    examines more than 30,000 images a day and is 80% accurate.
    • Keywords: tensorflow, falcon, Python, Docker, REST, image classification, image
      processing, machine vision, machine learning
  • Signature Detection – determine whether a consignee has signed a shipping document.
    • Keywords: tensorflow, falcon, Python, Docker, REST, object recognition, image processing,
      machine vision, machine learning
  • Automatic Document Indexing – extract fields such as invoice total from scanned documents.
    • Keywords: Python, Elasticsearch, REST, OCR, networkx, graph, edit distance, fuzzy matching,
      clustering, semi-supervised learning, unsupervised learning, case-based reasoning, data
      extraction

Founder
Emphysic

Plymouth, MN

Provide data engineering, data science, applied physics services.

Sample Project:

Magnetics Engineer
Pipetronix Ltd.
Toronto ON

Applied magnetics and physics research and development.

Sample Project:

  • Ambient Magnetic Field Model – developed a model of the behavior of the magnetic field
    around an in-line inspection tool as it moved through the pipeline, used to determine the bias in
    sensor readings as a function of velocity.
    • Keywords: time series, data acquisition, data analysis

Education
