I’m Matt Lind, a passionate hacker and machine learning enthusiast.
I like to explore the world of artificial neural networks (ANN) – different flavors, from normal fully connected to convolutional, sequentiell and reinforcement – for image recognition and NLP.
I’m coding in plain old C because I appreciate its simplicity, precision and speed. While some things may take a little longer to code in C, in the end they’ll run amazingly fast and (almost) anywhere.
I’m especially interested in Jeff Hawkins’ Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) and the CLA (Cortical Learning Algorithm) that his company Numenta is working on. If you haven’t done so, I highly recommend reading his book “On Intelligence”.
