What's your role?
I am a Full Stack Developer with emphasis on data pipelines and explorations. I aim to leverage my previous experience with designing data-ingestion processes and creating interactive dashboards to provide value to Harled's RCAF clients. There are lots of learning and creative opportunities that I look forward to as I become part of Harled's small but mighty team!
What is the secret to realizing a successful software project?
Persistence. It is important to keep trying and exploring when a blocker comes up. It doesn't mean hitting your head against the wall, but you need to have the determination of knowing that you are capable of solving any problems that is put in front of you with enough ingenuity, learning and experiences; and the best way to accumulate experience is by solving blocker and problem that you previously thought were impossible.
What emerging technology or industry are you most interested in?
Data-centric artificial intelligence.There are too many business problems that no one is able to execute successfully on due to the limited amount of data for a potential solution. I believe we need to create more tools that increase the homogeneity of data labeling across data sources within a given industry and create small but relevant machine learning systems that can tackle domain-specific problems.
What's your word of the day?
Recency bias. We believe that progress happens in a linear fashion; we are always more advanced in technology, society and arts than the previous generations. History, however, has many examples of this not being the case. It is important to look back and rediscover the knowledge and learning we've lost or forgotten.
