Machine Learning Scientist
Bruce grew up on Vancouver Island solving math problems in the car with his mom for fun! His deep interest in math led him to excel in his pursuit of a bachelor’s degree in honours mathematics and a master’s degree in computational biophysics from the University of British Columbia. During this time, he started tutoring other students, a vocation he enjoys immensely and continues in his spare time. In 2012, Bruce discovered machine learning and enrolled in a master’s degree at Simon Fraser University researching a novel semi-supervised learning approach. He continued to develop his skills in deep learning through meetups, self-study and Kaggle competitions, and looks forward to bringing his passion for understanding how things work to creating innovative solutions in reinforcement learning at 1QBit. Bruce is fluent in French and Mandarin, and loves to learn about and apply tools and practices that improve health and productivity.
