Robotics and Artificial Intelligence


Artificial Intelligence

My background is in Artificial Intelligence, Psychology and Robotics. Over the years, I have been involved in numerous projects on creating autonomous systems. It is incredibly satisfying to create any form of intelligence. Even when you know the entity is not conscious, it still gives you a sense of magical power when you see it perform a task on its own.

For a summary of what I have been involved in see here.


Total Diplomacy, Risk and Psychology of Influence

Game of Risk

I am a keen Risk player and I am forever fascinated by what it takes to win a game against 5 other players who are obsessed with winning and are good at it. It turns out , much like in real life, that winning and success has a lot to do with the psychology of influence and people skills than any other skill. I have a dedicated website on Risk strategies where I tend to explore this idea in depth.  

If you are a Risk fan, check Total Diplomacy and use the forum to share your ideas. I will be very interested to learn about your views and see what you think of my views.
