Artificial intelligence has become a common buzzword, especially in the startup community. I believe AI has the power to genuinely transform industries. Without a technical background, and the lack of depth in AI articles, I wanted to dive into the technical details to truly understand what AI and ML are all about. I am proud of a Machine Learning model I created through the completion of a Coursera class taught by Andrew Ng. While the model is nothing impressive (it classifies a cat with ~80% accuracy), it signifies a more significant effort. I had no formal coding experience prior to the class, but have a strong math background and naïve determination. I completed a 5-course Python specialization series to gain a fundamental and practical understanding of coding. I am proud of what the ML model represents: persistence and learning.
I continue to explore computer science as a whole through various avenues. Below are a handful of project or topics I've worked on that relate to computer science:
AI & Algorithmic Justice- In addition to understanding the technical details of AI, there are significant ethical implication. I explored this topic in an (unpublished) article with Kevin Fraiser, Class of 2022 at UC-Berkeley School of Law.
