Max is working on the IUU hydrophone project to develop a deep-learning solution to detect illegal blast-fishing.

This project involves taking audio data from remote hydrophones, processing it in real-time, and alerting authorities whenever a blast is detected.His current work focuses on using traditional signal processing techniques to automatically detect and classify blasts.  This will provide both an extensive training set for a deep-learning solution, as well as a bench mark to compare against.

Max received his bachelor in computer science with a software engineering option from the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada.  During which he found a passion for image processing and data visualization.
