About me (Amund Tveit)
I am a VP of Data at Zedge (personalization app with 200+ million downloads on iOS and Android). Check out the blog post Deep Learning for Mobile Personal Expression at Zedge for what my team and me are using Deep Learning for. [Want to work with me?]
I co-founded Memkite that develops large-scale Deep Learning and Search (Convolutional Neural Network) with Swift and Metal for iOS/iPhone, parts of this has been open sourced as DeepLearningKit. I also co-founded Atbrox, a cloud computing/big data service company. Atbrox has some “sweat equity” startup investments in US and Nordic startups (in particular within educational technology).
Prior to that I worked for Google, where I was tech.lead for Google News for iPhone (mentioned as “Google News Now Looks Beautiful On Your iPhone” on Mashable.com<), lead a team measuring and improving Google Services in the Scandinavian Countries (Maps and Search) and worked as a software engineer on infrastructure projects. Other work experience include telecom (IBM Canada) and insurance/finance.
I have a PhD in Computer Science (publications, citations: 500+, h-index: 12, i10-index: 14), and hold 4 US patents in the areas of search and advertisement technology, and a pending US patent (brain-controlled search with consumer-level EEG devices).
