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.

My research lab held an archery tag house-cup. We sorted ourselves into houses and competed for bragging rights and the shiniest of trophies. Slytherin naturally won. 🐍 . . . #harrypotter #slytherin #magic #science #gradschool


The BLINC lab just made a pretty neat video about the adaptive prosthetics work we do.


I think this is the coolest invoice I've ever seen. Kevlar and Carbon Fiber.


Got to play with some new headgear in the lab. I'm the resident EEG zen-master, and some people are looking at using it as an additional control channel for bionic limbs.

They just hacked apart a mind-flex toy headset.


I hooked my brain up to a computer today for science.
