My HoloSelfie
HoloSelfie, taken through the HoloLens while making “Star Trek and Chill”

I’m Director of Account Management at EPAM, where I work with several of their key Canadian accounts and have returned to my machine learning roots. I focus on data science, data platform and intelligent automation initiatives for EPAM’s clients in Canada, including one of our top clients globally. These days I work with both business and technology leadership and have been part of some exciting initiatives from inception to delivery, where we’ve been delighted to see data science get transformed into insight delivery for our clients.

For the previous six years I was on the Accounts team at Infusion, a global technology leader that is now part of Avanade. I worked primarily in the the Financial Services, Professional Services and Resources industries.

On the side I run a small consultancy, Carrington, that delivers awesome mini-projects to channel my interests in technology, machine learning and photography.

Before that, a Microsoft technical evangelist based in Dublin, Ireland.

Before that, I studied artificial intelligence in the Synthetic Characters group at the MIT Media Lab in Boston and worked on biometric interfaces in the MindGames group at MIT Media Lab Europe.

This site contains information about some past projects, and links to my contributions scattered across the internets. You can contact me through LinkedIn, or by sending me e-mail at rob at robburke dot net.
