Manifesto

Nous voulons, tant ce feu nous brûle le cerveau, Plonger au fond du gouffre, Enfer ou Ciel, qu'importe? Au fond de l'Inconnu pour trouver du nouveau!
--Charles Baudelaire

I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves -- this critical basis I call the ideal of a pigsty.
--Albert Einstein
天下事有难易乎? 为之, 则难者亦易矣; 不为, 则易者亦难矣。
--彭端淑(Duanshu Peng)
That fondness for science, ... that affability and condescension which God shows to the learned, that promptitude with which he protects and supports them in the elucidation of obscurities and in the removal of difficulties, has encouraged me to compose a short work on calculating by al-jabr and al-muqabala , confining it to what is easiest and most useful in arithmetic.
--عبد الله محمد بن موسى الخوارزمی(al-Khwārizmī)

Interests

I'm interested in machine learning, as applied to robotics. In particular, I'm interested in deep/reinforcement/neuro-based learning approaches to robotic perception, control, and physical modeling of the robot's environment.
