Personal

My name is Alexander Wong. I was born into the millennial demographic cohort. My first computer was the Tandy 1000, where I spent many summers playing old Sierra text adventure games like Kings Quest and Manhunter.

I am currently a graduate student at the University of Alberta, Department of Computing Science, living in Alberta, Canada. I began pursuing my Master’s degree in September 2018 due to a stubborn curiosity regarding the mechanisms of deep neural networks and their impressive results in image classification and segmentation tasks. My research is currently in the classification and analysis of 12-lead electrocardiogram signals.
