When I'm not playing with robots, I hang out with the indieweb community, drink tea, and scubadive.

Things I did today: repeatedly throw axes in a warehouse.


Today in grad-school: brains need 25 watts---the same amount as a light-bulb.


Today in grad-school: French robots reciting Asimov's laws of robotics.


Today in grad school: learning how to play poker really well.


Today in grad-school: students pretending to be dolphins to understand actor-critic reinforcement learning.


Things I did yesterday: throw a large number of pom-poms at my supervisor's head.
