John Quinn

I’m an Artificial Intelligence Advisor at United Nations Global Pulse, working mainly on projects in Pulse Lab Kampala, Uganda. At Makerere University I’m also an Honorary Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science and part of the Artificial Intelligence Research group. From October 2016 to October 2018 I’m a visiting researcher at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh.

My research interests are in machine learning, data science and artificial intelligence, and particularly in the use of techniques from these fields to address information gaps and practical problems in developing countries.
