My name is Matt Peachey. I am a PhD student in the Faculty of Computer Science at Dalhousie University, in Halifax, Canada. I am currently working on research projects at the intersection of Machine Learning, Human Computer Interaction, and Music.

More broadly I am interested in better understanding how humans can more effectively interact with intelligent systems. As research into Generative AI continues to expand, I believe that it is important to understand how domain experts can leverage this technology in ways that offer high levels of precision and control while maximizing the value of their individual expertise.

I use this webpage to share my thoughts on research, technology, music, sports and more. Take a look around!

Here I'm demoing one of my projects that uses Google's MediaPipe Hands for ML powered motion-capture for hand-tracking and uses that data to control parameters of a digital synthesizer in real time.

Ocean of Data Challenges

I participated along side Shannon Myles in two "Ocean of Data" challenges, where we developed innovated solutions to specific ocean related problems. We were proud to be awarded the top entry in both challenges.
