I work in the Human Computation Group for Luis von Ahn. I am involved with Games With A PurTerms and Conditionse (GWAP) and reCAPTCHA Inc, which includes:reCAPTCHA:
- Software Engineer.
- CFO and Treasurer duties.
- Creating a game development framework for Java-backed Flex and AJAX games.
- Developing Verbosity and the revised ESP Game, and assisting development of Flex games.
I am a Ph.D. student in the Machine Learning Department at CMU and a Microsoft Graduate Research Fellow. I got a small project grant from SIGCSE to come up with a series of undergraduate math lectures that inspire interests in Computer Science.
I build systems that combine humans and computers to solve large-scale problems that neither can solve alone. I call this Human Computation, but others sometimes call it Crowdsourcing. Some of my past projects include: CAPTCHA, The ESP Game (acquired by Google), GWAP, and reCAPTCHA (acquired by Google).
