Brad has several years of experience in engineering, materials science and software development. In 2012 he released the open source framework GPUImage, enables high-performance image and video processing on mobile devices, and some of the most interesting work with it revolves around machine vision. Each of the operations in the framework have been hand-tuned for optimal performance on mobile devices. This work has led to breakthroughs propelling convolutional neural networks into the spotlight as incredibly effective general-purpose tools for machine vision.
Brad earned a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from the Rose Hulman Institute of Technology and a master's and doctoral degrees in Materials Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
