Since August 2018, I've been working as a Senior UX Researcher at MathWorks, creators of MATLAB® and Simulink®. I'm supporting the User Experience of coding with MATLAB® Deep Learning Toolbox. This means that I'm using a combination of quant and qual methods, to uncover current workflows, goals and pain points of real customers when using our software to perform AI. I'm really enjoying learning about AI, and the direct influence I'm offering to a neat programming language such as MATLAB®. What I find most intriguing is that my UX research and designs of interest are focused on the ease of use of code rather than visual artifacts, which is a unique problem to be solving in the space. Some MATLAB® features I have directly contributed to can be found below.
○ Train Network on Image and Feature Data
○ Train Network Using Custom Training Loop
○ Train Generative Adversarial Network (GAN)
○ Use Automatic Differentiation In Deep Learning Toolbox
