How Can I Help?
My name is Matthew Daiter, and I help interactive technologists create unforgettable experiences through
my software and hardware skillset. Use me to condense your project's timeline and budget with bulletproof,
scalable, and modular embedded software frameworks.
Throughout my career, I've led teams on two continents to open new business avenues for startups, deliver state-of-the-art computer vision research, and guarantee the delivery of hardware and software projects with daunting timelines through determination and grit.
My exposure spans broadly across computer vision, distributed systems, and interactive design. From designing robotic apartments for the MIT Media Lab to fine-tuning drone cameras for Swiss startups, my career has honed my ability to lead teams in diverse settings. My graduate studies at the University of Oxford and CU Boulder in the computer science and electrical engineering departments, respectively, has further compounded this skillset.
Currently, I work remotely on projects with various startups. Feel free to reach out or read about the case studies below.
EMBEDDED OPTIMIZATION EXPERT
After tasked with making Magic Leap's Copresence fast enough to ship, I organized my daily tasks dovetailing UX priorities with embedded engineering practicalities to focus on optimizing rendering and transmission/retrieval times for real-time streaming.

"Personally, I usually do not form opinions of people before having a chance to work with them. Matt not only met [my] expectations, he exceeded them. [W]hen we were tasked to improve performance of Avatar Chat by several times, and consistently achieve a certain frame rate, I knew he had the tenacity and attention to detail to pursue that goal. Our designers were ecstatic because our team had a reputation of being able to implement with faithfulness, all of their designs without compromise. In a heartbeat, I would recommend Matt as not just a superb generalist, but someone who is capable of quickly specializing in a topic to a high degree of competence. He has a very strong work ethic and has a challenge-oriented attitude when given hard tasks to solve.
Having the chance to work with Matt Daiter during my tenure at Magic Leap, was one of the great joys I had. With Matt’s help (and others on our team), we overcame incredible challenges. His adaptability and resourcefulness were essential for helping to resolve the many unexpected challenges that presented themselves during Avatar Chat’s development. I am a better person and developer for having him on my team."
Kevin Mersch, CTO
"Not having a university certification when we hired [Matthew] to work on some research related topics was as much a risk as an opportunity. Why not recruit someone with an unconventional background? The impact of his work was pivotal, to say the least. He presented a possible technological path toward the problem we were facing regarding our data processing and management architecture for massive future data volumes. This enabled the company to reallocate development resources to anticipate future bottlenecks. I would not hesitate to employ Matthew again."

LEAD DISTRIBUTED SYSTEMS AND COMPUTER VISION RESEARCHER
Before I came, Nomoko had a solid 3D reconstruction engine. I created their first CUDA computer vision pipeline, a custom LLVM engine, and Erlang bindings for their pipeline. Now, they can handle reconstruct client requests faster and scale to as many clients as necessary through a distributed reconstruction engine, as well as scale their team and interface.
