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 18 - 30th

  • Went to Grace Hopper Conference 2018
  • Met an ontologist!
  • Found an old mentor from the Google scholar's retreat
  • Met up with an old classmate from uni
  • Caught up with unexpected acquaintances
  • Practiced having random conversations with people about what they work on
  • Acquired all the swag


Grace Hopper 2018


Really excited to head to my first #GHC2018 tomorrow! Does anyone have advice for how to make the most of it as a first-timer?


Are any #indieweb folks heading to #ghc2018 this year? If there's any interest, I'd love to have an ad-hoc homebrew website club!
