About Jacob

I am a Research Fellow in the Machine Learning Group at the University of Waikato. I am the lead developer and maintainer of scikit-multiflow, a machine learning framework for multi-label/multi-output stream data.

I worked at GE Aviation as Tech Lead in the development of embedded software for Diagnostics and Prognostics of Airborne Systems.
