I guess I’m like many other people on this planet. I have a wonderful family, successes, failures, interests, hobbies, and all that good stuff. I have a degree in programming and that has always been something that I continually fall back on as a hobby. I had success as a programmer for a living but my true desire is machine intelligence. BTW, I hesitate to call it artificial intelligence because if it’s smart why is it artificial? That’s probably a whole topic i may explore on this site… Oh well, I have so many interests that I feel that there’s not enough time in the day to explore it all. So, hopefully here I will try to hit the ones that I like the best.
