Bio

Carlos Toxtli is currently a Computer Science Ph.D. student where he is researching intelligent tools and bots to improve the future of crowd work. In the past, he has worked at Microsoft Research, Google, and the United Nations where he developed innovative tools to empower people through technology. His research has been published in top venues such as ACM CHI and covered by news outlets. His passion for using AI to help individuals grow at their job has led him to become a tech evangelist facilitating the continuous learning of adults.  He has given more than one hundred talks in conferences around the world. He is also a serial entrepreneur, creating multiple startups focused on fin-tech, e-commerce, automation, bots, and education.

Demos

Hum2Song : AI-powered web application that is able to compose the musical accompaniment of a melody produced by a human voice. This tool is powered by new models ported to tensorflow.js and existing Google Magenta models #MadeWithMagenta.

MultiAffect : Reproducible Research Framework for Multimodal Affect and Action Recognition at Utterance-Level with Spatio-Temporal Feature Fusion by using Face, Instantaneous Emotions, Audio, Text, and Body Features

AutomEditor: AutomEditor is an AI-based video editor that helps video bloggers to remove bloopers automatically. It uses multimodal Spatio-temporal blooper recognition and localization approaches. The models were trained in Keras and integrate feature fusion techniques from the face, body gestures (skeleton), emotions progression, and audio features.

Docs2Web : Online tool that turns any Google Docs document into a modern website. This is especially helpful for documents that constantly change, or collaborative documents where multiple people update them.

VR-Web-3D-News-Visualization : WebGL application that is able to gather tech news from different sources and show them structured on different 3D arrangements. This tool supports VR headsets for an immersive experience.

Minimum-Fault-Detection : This tool lets users to visualize all the possible failures that can happen on an interconnected set of components.

Benchmark of web-based face detectors: This is a collection of web-based face detectors that can be implemented statically. These are the cleanest implementations of existing technologies that let users to focus on their processing and not in the camera implementation component.
