I'm Alex Kearney, a PhD student studying Computer Science at the University of Alberta. I focus on Artificial Intelligence and prosthetics.

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

I talk a lot about dev , yeg , indieweb , travel , grad-school , smithsonian , folk , music , ux , and web

Yesterday I hade Thai tea ice cream 🍦 and learned about dialog systems #gradcohort2018 #gradschool #tech


In San Fran for #gradcohort2018 . Currently eating my weight in nigiri 🍣 and enjoying the excellent conversation. It’s not often I get to hang out with so many women in tech.



I’ve been waiting a long time for this! My @inputclub white fox keyboard is finally here! So excited to start typing on my hako trues 😍 . . . #mechanicalkeyboard #mechkeyboard #whitefox #tech



I went to see @alvvaysband at the starlight room last week. The serendipitous highlight for me was getting to see @thisisfrankierose. They were in a few playlists that I used to listen to in highschool, but lost their music when my harddrive died. Im getting crazy nostalgia after finding them all over again.
