Hi, I'm Finbarr Timbers. I'm a machine learning researcher currently working
to solve intelligence. This is my personal site and has no relationship to
any organization I may be professionally affiliated with
I am currently working mostly on reinforcement learning problems, although I
have a wide variety of research interests, including adversarial examples,
optimization in the context of machine learning, and representation
Occasionally, I read things that aren't just machine learning papers, and
list the books I particularly like here.
I turned my academic research into a SaaS app that automatically analysed &
deduplicate bug reports. Unfortunately, it was too expensive for me to
keep running, but I have the code & can deploy it with a few hours work.
If anyone's interested in using this at their company, I'd love to talk to
A system that automatically detects duplicate bug reports.
Research Engineer, DeepMind
My role is to provide engineering support and contribute ideas to research
projects. Heavy experience with Tensorflow and distributed computing, done
mostly in Python. I was the first engineer hired in the Edmonton office.
Data Scientist, Darkhorse Analytics
Used my background in academic research to come up with highly
scalable algorithms based on machine learning to solve our clients
needs. Solutions were typically based on the state of the art academic
