About

This blog is where I write the things that don't fit on Twitter, which tends to end up with a policy bent. I submitted my PhD in Computer Systems Engineering at the University of Auckland in January 2019. It was about computer vision and person tracking and machine learning and model fusion and embedded systems and privacy and ethics.

Now, I work as an investment analyst for an early-stage venture capital fund, and also hold a position as a Research Fellow at Koi Tū: The Centre for Informed Futures at the University of Auckland. Nothing on this blog represents the opinions or views of any of my employers.

I was also involved with the Auckland University Robotics Association (which I founded in 2011) and UN Youth New Zealand rather heavily. My personal website that has a bit more of a CV on it is at andrewchen.nz. Sometimes my friends help write some things and I don't want to take credit for their writing though, so their names are usually at the top of each thing they write. After running A Policy A Day twice, I took the next step and edited a book titled Shouting Zeros and Ones: Digital Technology, Ethics, and Policy in New Zealand.

I used to be a "case-by-case centrist", and then I got called "a left-wing shill". I'm probably more left-leaning than right these days, but still have a lot of frustration about the left-leaning political parties in New Zealand. I'm constantly learning and finding out more about politics and policy in New Zealand. I am not a member of any political party and have no other political affiliations.
