tl;dr: Rob is a Director at EPAM, where his days consist of some improbable combination of digital product development, data science, cycling, public transit, photography, and fixing his son’s robots with crazy glue

I work with an amazing global team on at key Canadian accounts.

On the side I run Carrington, delivering mini-projects that channel my passions in technology, machine learning and photography.

This site contains information about some past projects, and links to some of my contributions scattered across the internet. It is increasingly out of date. I appreciate your understanding. Contact me through LinkedIn, or by sending me e-mail at rob at robburke dot net. 

A tiny bit of pre-EPAM history:

Previously on the accounts team at Infusion, a technology innovation leader that’s now part of Avanade. Digital and emerging technology solutions for FinServ, Professional Services and Resources industries.

Before that, I was a Microsoft technical evangelist (remember when that was a thing?!), based in Dublin, Ireland.

In grad school I studied artificial intelligence at MIT in the Synthetic Characters group, working toward brain architectures for virtual characters. After graduating, I designed and built biometric interfaces (EEG, ECG and other) in the MindGames group at MIT Media Lab Europe.

This is my “holoselfie”, taken with a Gen-1 HoloLens a few years ago while building Star Trek and Chill. The HoloLens really takes off the years, no?
