Research Intern

SpellBrush (San Francisco) - Funded by Y Combinator

- Researched pose guided character generation using GANs and progressive growing. More info available on request as we did not publish and the results are not public.

- Lead SpellBrush's effort in synthetic data generation. Build a rendering pipeline in C++ which was 10x faster than Unity.

- Built WaifuLabs.com, a polished product demo of one of our model which gathered more than 1M users in less than a month. Was on the front page of Hacker News + very popular in Japan for a few weeks. Link

Co-Founder

Clearcall (Remote)

- Built the equivalent of Google Duplex for customer support. The software handles non-business-hours calls for e-commerce companies and guide callers through a decision tree. Customer support agents get actionable data instead of having to go through hours of voicemails everyday.

- We signed one e-commerce company with $1M in annual revenue and handle ~1000 calls for them every month.

Annual Recurring Revenue: $6,000

Founder

Easy Scale (Remote)

I founded and built a Software As A Service for Belgian notaries. Easy Scale is a web app which allows notaries to compute, share, and save non trivial financial calculations specific to their profession in the cloud. We are the first to offer a web product to solve the problem (as opposed to native softwares and Excel spreadsheets sold by our competitors).

Annual Recurring Revenue: 12,000€

Hackathons: 

I won prizes at 8 of them. Summary of my Devpost (https://devpost.com/justinglibert). More hackathons I won can be found there.

  • Y Combinator Hackathon (Mountain View, 2018): Finalist
    • Our team built a learning platform which allows lecturers to transform their classroom into an accessible one. Our project was functional, novel and made sense business-wise as Universities spend a lot of money on captionists. The YC partners liked the idea and had us pitch, along with 8 out of 97 other teams, in front of the judges and participants.
  • Hack the Burgh (Edinburgh, 2018): Winner of the Morgan Stanley challenge
    • Our team built a bot playing Doom in multiplayer. Each bot competed in a FFA match and the winner was determined based on the number of kills at the end of the game. Our bot won the tournament. Our approach was based on trigonometry and handwritten rules which were executed after being ranked according to their "usefulness" based on the current situation.
  • StudentHack VI (Manchester, 2018): 1st Prize 
    • We built a Werewolf/Mafia like online game using Javascript and React. The end product was polished and, most importantly, fun! The game received high engagement from participants even after the hackathon.

Prizes:

  • Pioneer on https://pioneer.app. "We fund projects and startups built by ambitious outsiders around the world."
  • Edinburgh Award (Enterprise)
    • I received an award for my entrepreneurial activities during my second year at the University of Edinburgh.
