Hello, I'm Joey Lee.

Generative design & geography, machine learning, data collection systems, climate change, urban climates, open source & access, visualization, algorithmic ethics, critical mapping, & education.


Friendly machine learning for the web.


ml5.js aims to make machine learning approachable for a broad audience of artists, creative coders, and students. The library provides access to machine learning algorithms and models in the browser, building on top of TensorFlow.js with no other external dependencies.

The library is supported by code examples, tutorials, and sample data sets with an emphasis on ethical computing. Bias in data, stereotypical harms, and responsible crowdsourcing are part of the documentation around data collection and usage.

ml5.js is heavily inspired by Processing and p5.js.

I contribute to the development of ml5.js by adding new features, creating new examples, maintaining the library, doing code reviews, addressing issues, and merging/communicating with contributors about pull requests, creating new releases, and leading style guidelines for software and design.
