Product Management, UX, ML

Hi, I'm Alan. I work at Home Depot on Applied Machine Intelligence solutions & System Design for Store Operations.


Applied Machine Intelligence

As the Product Manager for a small ML team in IT, I work with other departments to understand their problems and how ML or RPA can help. Often, the data isn't complete and requires unique solutions to reach the finish line. 

I'll put on my UX hat and design tool that improves the user's experience and provides vital training data for the ML model. 


Store Ops System Design

In a company the size of Home Depot, its difficult to connect the dots between applications. We're moving to a microservice architecture, but that increases the burden on EUX to understand the user's context and clearly communicate finding across products. We're also designing for entirely unique forms like VUI.

I'm working on a syntax for designers and product managers to easily describe logic and context without needing wireframes.


Lead UX & Tech Evangelist

I teach, speak and write about Machine Learning, System Design and Product Management internally & at meetups.
