JET Program

I spent 2003-2004 teaching English in Japan through the JET Program. I have posted some photos, but there are intentionally few pictures of people (including me) available to the public in this album. Feel free to get in touch with me if you are interested in learning more about the JET Program.


  • LaTeX poster template. This template makes posters that look like this. Here is what it looks like when used in a real conference poster. Feel free to use and distribute this template. Contact me (e-mail address below) if you have any suggestions or to let me know you have used it and found it helpful. Posters using it have already appeared in multiple machine learning conferences and are now in use my multiple research groups.
  • During the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 academic years, I co-organized the Machine Learning Tea at Berkeley.
  • A mini-guide for getting set up with Hadoop for machine learning people at Berkeley that I helped put together in 2009. We have provided sample code for how to do logistic regression with Hadoop, though this code is more of an example for how to use Hadoop than code you would actually want to run and has not been updated since 2009.
