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

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

What I Did Sept 17 - 23rd

  • Watched Donnie Darko for the first time and it is fantastic and amazing

  • Went to the Edmonton story slam for the first time

  • Had espresso at transcend

  • Read a bunch of random epistemology and got Expressivism, pragmatism and Representationalism

  • Had excellent chats with visitors from DLR about robot constructivism

  • Prepped for my first Grace Hopper Con

  • Had dim sum

  • Managed to summarize my research proposal in one page!

  • Had a birthday dinner with my family at Bistro Praha

  • Some people asked to take a selfie with me and I am still confused by it

Deliciously sarcastic fortune: "your graceful qualities make difficult things seem easy". Yes, I did drop it in my tea.


Butterschotch milkshakes are better in 1950s themed sci-fi diners.
