thoughts on computer science, electronics, mathematics


with 2 comments


I create technology for a living.

My interests are in artificial intelligence and all the domains that it eclipses. I care about finding solutions that allow people to make decisions, and getting those solutions to scale efficiently. Since completing my Master’s of Science (M.S.) in Computer Science from the University of Colorado at Boulder, I have pursued more research oriented lines of work.

Prior to returning to school, I worked as a generalist at a handful of SaaS healthcare related companies designing a wide variety of products from medical test equipment integration, top to bottom payroll and billing systems, to backends for web-based platforms used by hospitals and laboratories

Since the summer of 2008, this site has served as a repository for my personal work revolving around projects focusing on mathematics, computer science and electronics. Since I am not as involved in working on my side projects as I used to be, posts will be few and far between, but the archive is full of interesting posts worth a read and subscribing to the RSS feed or to e-mail notifications is a great way to stay informed of future posts.

  1. I’ve read bits on your blog about radial trees and sunburst diagrams. I really like you sunburst diagram and was considering using it to display an odd data set — the dynamic capacity of a network, or networked components. maybe not as a monitoring utility, but more along the lines of displaying related capacity growth requirements. And perhaps answer the question : Relatively, how complex is an environment given the ‘moving parts’ of each group. That is .. if I can make the data fit into a coherent tree :)

    I have been paging through examples online :

    caught my eye.

    Regardless in your blog post :

    I really like the layout. I’d like to tinker with what you have if that would be at all possible. Or, perhaps I can work with you to extend it ?

    Let me know. Thanks!

  2. Neat blog! I’m enjoying a lot of the articles here, and the focus on graphical representations of data.
