Dr. Seyed Reza Shahamiri

Passionate about learning and innovation, I invest a considerable amount of my time in learning, applying, and teaching a wide range of topics in software engineering and machine learning. My background is in software engineering and software development in which I have participated in several challenging projects. After my initial experience with machine learning in 2006, my interest was shifted towards the development of intelligent software solutions that leverage artificial intelligence methods, and more specifically, deep learning technologies. My work mostly deal with the engineering aspects of deep neural networks and how they can be utilized to develop end user products and services rather research-only aspects. I have hands-on experience with different types of DNNs such as ANNs, CNNs, LSTMs, etc. to implement advanced regression and classification software solutions, time-series analysis and so on, using both supervised and unsupervised methods.
I am also excited about data science - I am excited about how machine learning algorithms are utilized for data modelling and intelligence extraction and forecasting. I develop Python scripts and micro services to build data models and then apply them on different datasets to explore and mine intelligence.
I have extensive experience as a software education specialist and lecturer, and have designed several software development related hands-on courses and programmes of study, all of which received very positive feedback from students.
