AI ENTHUSIAST, DATA SCIENTIST, WEB DEV AND ROBOTICS PRACTITIONER.

About


Jorge is currently graduate student at the University of Southern California with a focus in Machine Learning, and a research assistant at the CLVR Lab under Professor Joseph Lim.

He worked as the Head of Technology at ByPrice, mainly concentrated on scaling system architecture for internationalization to yield a data-driven strategy across multiple cloud platforms (GCP and AWS). Before that, he worked as a mixed Data Scientist creating data-intensive solutions for users and costumers. Such solutions involved data munging processes, information integration from different web sources and combined NLP-Computer vision classification tasks. As a web developer, he contributed to implementing REST APIs for critical services such as session tokenization, price and product catalogues, etc.

He graduated from the Faculty of Engineering at UNAM in Mexico, where he obtained a B.Sc. in Mechatronics Engineering. There, his thesis Genetic algorithm for bipedal gait patterns optimization aimed to combine exploratory and search algorithms to find a solution of a high order dynamic system.

Before joining ByPrice he co-founded Tuibo a tech company working to develop smart wearable devices for cyclists, and as an undergraduate research assistant at the BEST Lab in UC Berkeley.

Projects


Tuibo

Smart wearable device for cyclists: a Bluetooth® controlled vest, capable to show turning signals, braking light, headlight and a horn.

Otto & OttoML

Automatic Crypto-currency trader, able to perform transactions upon trading rules. The ML version tries to weight and validate behaviours from several predictive algorithms to maximize profit. (In dev.)

Flaspark

A light weight implementation to perform batch and on demand asynchronous jobs using Flask as Web framework and PySpark as the analytical engine. (In dev.)
