My reasearch interest lies in applying various machine learning and computer vision algorithms to real world problems. I enjoy working with big amounts of data and trying to find patterns in them. Through these projects I also like to investigate the inner workings of these algorithms further, especially neural networks, to gain a deeper understanding of them.
I currently work on progressively learning and growing neural networks and combatting catastrophic forgetting once new tasks are introduced to a neural network. These solutions will then be applied to a neural network which learns to extract semantic and complex information out of images, exceeding simple pixel value descriptions or labels and trying to teach neural networks scene understanding.
