At any one time I usually have a few projects on the go and I use this site to document what I get up to. Please browse the menu bar above for articles about current and past projects. Often my projects generate software, usually this will be open source. you can browse and download software here.

Lots of Humans in the Loop

Back in December I gave a seminar at Microsoft Research Cambridge into my research interests around Lots of Humans In the Loop (LHIL) control. The seminar was recorded and can be viewed on Microsoft's site using the link below.

Raspberry Pi- iTelescope

Describes the latest updates in my project to instrument a Dobsonian telescope. A Raspberry Pi is used as the telescope control computer and virtual planetarium software Stellarium is used to visualize where the telescope is pointing.

This is a trailer for a small article that will be appearing on the BBC's The One Show on the 24th August 2012.

I was involved in the making of this back in May and it was a lot of fun, so I hope the finished article will be informative and fun too.

I am not allowed to give away specific details on the content of the article before the programme is broadcast, but I can say it is about machine learning in traffic control and it involves a traffic control experiment on a grand scale.

James Snowdon's new website contains some really interesting stuff on traffic control and complexity science in general. Plus it links over to this website so in the spirit of mutual backslapping: http://snowdonjames.com/
