    Interests
     
    I am interested in data: how to intelligently acquire them all the way to making sense of them. With the ever abundant data produced by a variety of means, problems faced by both researchers, business leaders and decision makers are very similar:
    • How can one gather large amount of data efficiently ?
    • How does one make sense of them ? and
    • How can one act on them ?
     
    Some of the technical issues underlying this problematic are discussed on my blog: Nuit Blanche. The blog's readership consists of a wide cross section of specialists from academia, industry and government in areas ranging from sensor/hardware design to Machine Learning.  Nuit Blanche has had over two and half million views since 2010.

    You will find below a list of reports, papers and presentations I have writtenas well as well outreach activities. Only those reports and papers that are not proprietary are listed on this page.

    "Richard Hamming’s three questions for new hires at Bell Labs:
    1- What are you working on?
    2- What’s the most important open problem in your area?
    3- Why aren’t they the same? (Ouch!)

    “You and Your Research” --- Richard Hamming (1986) 

     

    Don’t worry about people stealing your ideas. If it’s original, you’ll have to ram it down their throats”  

    Howard Aiken
