Robert-Jan Bruintjes

Deep Learning scientific developer

I am a scientific developer at Sightcorp experienced in combining deep learning with object oriented programming to create fast and efficient applications that work with big data. I completed the UvA’s Artificial Intelligence masters program, where I learned to apply my knowledge of statistical models to create algorithms that can do machine translation, character recognition or other complicated tasks.

My master thesis project investigated a possible connection between machine learning and causal inference. I also worked with Annette Ten Teije on extending the automatic computation of healthcare quality indicators to natural language for Amsterdam Data Science.

Recent work includes a short paper to the SIGIR 2015 Information Retrieval conference, working with Thomas Mensink on a zero-shot image recognition framework as an extension to COSTA and several masters projects for the UvA relating to machine translation and deep generative models.

I also have a lot of experience in front-end web development and have a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. I am familiar with most modern programming paradigms and very keen to learn.
