Daniel joined the ORI as a DPhil Student in 2019 at Linacre College. He is jointly supervised by Lars Kunze (Cognitive Robotics Group) in the ORI, and Marina Jirotka and Helena Webb in the Computer Science department.
Daniel obtained a bachelor’s degree in computer science with first class honours from the University of Ilorin in 2015. After some experience with software engineering in the industry, he joined Carnegie Mellon University and obtained a masters degree in information technology in 2019 focussing on machine learning and software engineering. In 2018, he completed a project on visual explanations of deep convolutional neural networks’ decisions during his internship at IBM Research. He also researched on the forecasting of urban land-use in sub-Saharan Africa using aerial imagery during his masters programme.
His areas of interest include explainable AI, and applied machine learning for social good. Currently, he is looking at the development of an enhanced explanation framework for AI Systems drawing on social science theories
