Elliott Forney at Poudre River

I am a computer scientist, researcher and engineer who specializes in building cutting-edge software systems that leverage machine learning and artificial intelligence.  I have extensive experience working in the fields of computer vision, remote sensing, natural language processing,  biomedical signal analysis and brain-computer interfaces. I also have broad interests in machine learning, artificial intelligence, high-performance computing, software engineering and other areas of computer science.  Please feel free to review my vita and GitHub page for more information.

I currently work for Maxar Technologies as a Senior R&D Scientist where I specialize in developing cutting-edge AI/ML systems for processing satellite imagery and geospatial data.  Before joining Maxar, I also worked at IBM as a Machine Learning Engineer and Machine Learning Architect on the Watson Natural Language Understanding team.

Prior to joining the commercial workforce, I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science under Dr. Charles Anderson at Colorado State University. My graduate research was focused on the development of novel machine learning methods for modeling signals and time series.  In particular, I worked for the CSU Brain-Computer Interfaces Laboratory on an NSF-funded grant to develop machine learning techniques for analyzing Electroencephalography (EEG) signals in noninvasive Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs).

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and working on various home projects.  I also enjoy creating science art, camping, hiking and target shooting.  I am originally from Scottsbluff Nebraska and still enjoy spending time on the prairie and helping out on Forney Ranch.
