Bio

Jason Ramapuram joined the DMML team in 2015. He completed his Masters in Electrical Engineering (with a focus on Signal Processing) in 2011 from the University of California, Riverside. Until joining the DMML team Jason worked as a Software Engineer at Qualcomm Inc and later as a Machine Learning Engineer at Viasat Inc. Jason has also done academic internships at Apple AI Research and Rockwell Collins Advanced Technology Center.

Research

Jason is actively working on Lifelong Learning for Generative Models, Variational approaches to allow CNN’s to work over ultra-high dimensional image data (eg: 4k / 8k images) and approaches to incorporate non-differentiable functions without neural network pipelines. He has also dabbled in some research attempting to find failings of neural networks in simple learning scenarios.
