Hi, I’m Alexander – rocket scientist turned artificial intelligence engineer.
Why did I become an engineer? Because engineers advance technology and technology advances civilization.
I approach AI as rational decision making under uncertainties… I focus in the areas of Bayesian machine learning and probabilistic programming, while spending time at the intersection of AI and neuroscience.
And with a background in spacecraft engineering, I strive for robust, safe AI by leading with proven systems engineering practices.
I’m a startup founder and advisor, angel investor, and AI mentor.
Away from the computer I’m a runner, yogi, outdoors explorer, and sushi lover. My bookshelf ranges from Sean Carroll to DF Wallace to Richard Dawkins to Cixin Liu.
