Hi, I am Martin, but I go by Visgean on the internet. I am a software engineer at Dexter energy, an energy forecasting company in Amsterdam. I am interested in renewables, deep learning, weather and software development. My CV is here.

This website is timeless™ and as such I did not set up an RSS or mail list like kids do these days. I sometimes post updates on twitter so you can follow me there.

I graduated with honours degree in Computer science from University of Edinburgh. You can see some of my photos from that time here.

Final year project - Deep RL

My final year project was to learn walk-like behaviour on simulated dog-like robot with end to end deep reinforcement learning.

Read my final year project report here (received an A). Or watch some funny videos of learned behaviour below:

Machine learning for weather prediction

For our Machine Learning Practical course we tried out various deep learning techniques to predict weather. We used Weather Bench dataset that made it very easy to evaluate our results and also included pre-processing of the data. Read the report.
