I love building things! Recently, I've been focused on speeding up networked systems.
Past, future, and personal interests include neuroscience, data visualization, and 3D art.
I am always looking for smart people to work on fun projects with. Please reach out if you are too!
A tool for executing timed experiments over SSH.
Shremote uses an extensible configuration file format to turn running experiments, making logs, and gathering data into a seamless and easy process.
One of my favorite card games, written in python, to be played in a terminal. Single- or multi-player.
Partially an experiment with substitution of various views (web, text), and controllers (local, remote).
Train a hopfield network on a series of images, randomize it, let it run, and watch as it transitions into a learned state.
Bagel is a two player word-guessing game
The game can either be played locally against an AI (python) or against other players online (node.js, not currently hosted anywhere)
Decorate a python function with @memoize_to_file, and it will automatically store function return values and standard output, and recall them (rather than recomputing) on the next invocation.
