Personal Projects and Research

Cloann
Clojure library to create, train, and run artificial neural networks. Intended to eventually usalize Push Genetic Programming to impplement a N.E.A.T. like system of evolving the network topologies. Code.
Pucks
Pucks is an Artificial Life simulator created by Lee Spector . My involvement has been to improve the systems performance, and design a system to handle forced transactions (or violence) between the agents.
Pysh
Python implementation of Push. Push is a stack based programming language, which features a different stack for each data type, including code. Push is designed to be easily synthesised by genetic programming systems.
YouTuber's Best Buddy
A in-development desktop application that is intended to be used by YouTube content creators who would like more automation in their workflow.
Pick It Out!
A simple mobile application to help users made decisions by providing a simulation of flipping a coin, rolling 1 or 2 dice, or putting up to 8 options on a spinner. Code.
Evolving Orbits
A python application that used the DEAP machine learning package to find stable planetary orbital patterns. The system uses a genetic algorithm to optimize initial positions, velocities, and masses of planets that do not collide with each other when run through a gravity simulation. Code.
Erra Digital
Erra Digital is a website that serves as the home to all my digital projects. The site also features a gaming blog which consists of game reviews, industry news, and other articles. To site.
