On Machine Intelligence at Shield AI
What did you do before coming to Shield AI? Before coming to Shield AI, I was an electrical engineer and programmer for the Unmanned Systems group at SPAWAR Systems Center, Pacific. Throughout my eleven years at SPAWAR, I worked on a variety of projects, including electrical design for ground vehicle payloads, command and control user interface development, autonomy stacks for ground vehicles, and GPS-denied navigation for surface vehicles. I was exposed to and worked in many different facets of robotics before realizing that my passion was in machine intelligence.
