walking wizard

You’ve stumbled upon my stash of notes, projects, ramblings, and posts about new things I’ve learned or projects I’ve done. This is also a way for me to clear out my backlog of projects and ideas I have stashed away to “play around with”.

This blog should mainly be focused on ML & AI, but it’ll also have stuff on anything else I’m interested in.

I’m a graduate student in computer science. So far, my work has been in Machine Learning & Gaussian Processes in the field of biochemistry for early medical diagnosis. In the past I’ve worked on theoretical CS and novel algorithms for MP3 steganography. Bayesian models are my current preferred area of research. Currently working in industry; possibly PhD at some point.

Besides my main topics of focus, I’m also interested in and try to follow: exploit development, security, OS development, drug discovery, genomics, neuroscience, artificial life, finance, and discrete optimization… to name a few. I tend to have a pool of active projects and research that I rotate work on based on the what the weather is like and what I’m snacking on (or whatever random shit I tell myself). Olympic weightlifting, eating, gaming, and exploring/adventures are some of the other things I love doing. I’m also a lover of oldskool {internet, programming, computing} and have recently dipped into the demoscene.

Privacy: I don’t keep, store, or want, any of your data. I only use GoatCounter analytics which has 0 tracking or privacy invasive techniques, for the sites analytics such as how many views a post has had. This is only so I don’t have to keep writing shitty scripts to read server logs and because I think the integrated WP “stats” are questionable. Nothing follows you around the web or pulls in data.
