👋 Hi, I'm Takuya

Takuya Kitazawa is a freelance software developer, minimalistic traveler, ultralight hiker & runner, and craft beer enthusiast. While my area of specialty is in data & AI ethics and machine learning productization, I have worked full-stack throughout the career e.g., as a frontend/backend engineer, OSS developer, technical evangelist, solution architect, data scientist, and product manager. You can find what I am doing lately at my "now" page, and your inquiry is always welcome at [email protected], including comments on my blog posts.

I'm passionate about bridging a gap between scientific theory and real-world practice in industry. The previous contribution includes but is not limited to developing OSS for scalable ML, building out-of-the-box ML application, writing academic papers, presenting at tech conferences, and working on customer-facing opportunities in a variety of industries such as online media, gaming, retail and supply chain.
