Mike Procopio, Ph.D.

Senior Staff Software Engineer at Google
AI and Machine Learning Research

Background

I'm a Senior Staff Software Engineer and AI / Machine Learning researcher at Google Boulder. Currently, I serve as an engineering rotator with Gradient Ventures supporting test.ai.

Previously, I worked on Google Drive for an eight-year tenure serving as the Tech Lead / Manager for both the Google Drive Intelligence team (leading the Quick Access and Priority features) and the Google Drive SDK team (leading the Drive API and the WhatsApp / Drive integration).

Prior to that, I worked on Google Drive more generally developing features such as file versions, simplified drag and drop upload, the Google Drive SDK (including Version 2 of the SDK), Apps in Google Drive, Apps for Gmail Attachments, Google My Maps in Drive, and Android Auto Backup in Drive.

I'm the developer of Zip Extractor, a free web app for unzipping files and Gmail attachments into Google Drive. It's available in the Chrome Web Store and G Suite Marketplace and is open source.

Research and Patents

I received my Ph.D. in Machine Learning from the University of Colorado at Boulder. My research interests include machine learning classification and regression through deep learning and ensemble methods, autonomous vehicles, recommendation systems, computer vision, and robotics. As part of my doctoral research, I published the Hand-Labeled DARPA LAGR Datasets (also available on Kaggle).

I've filed 45 patents with the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) with research and inventions in the areas of APIs, search and productivity tools, collaboration, recommendation systems, natural language processing, third-party application integration, and file synchronization in cloud-based storage systems.
