About Ulf

Hello, my name is Ulf. My strengths are a) the explorative, abstract phases in problem-solving, b) machine learning techniques, and c) deployment. I'm looking for new partners to develop and deploy ML products.
I am focusing on two projects right now (one more to drop):

(1) Investment Game app
- users need to beat our ML models to unlock levels
- team: you (it's UX heavy), you (maybe PWAs?), me (backend APIs, ML/sequences)

(2) Exercise Analyser app
- record training session on video, automatically extract data to track (e.g. rep counts, bad form, etc.)
- team: Quantified self enthusiast (App Dev), me (ML/CV, backend APIs, wireframing)

Every expert was once a noob.
I don't intend to develop the perfect product before launching anything. I want to bootstrap (sorry nothing to earn here rn) and play the long game, the long "validated learning" game.
Maybe you just started to learn coding web apps, android, app, or any app. Or to sketch your ideas, wireframes or figured that you have an eye for gaps, the whys, and hows. Maybe you are a young person who want to show off your skills. Or you are experienced but a professional in different field of expertise.

Drop me an email, so we can talk about.
