Once upon a time, I was a scientist

While you are all waiting with what I am sure is hushed anticipation and bated breath for tales from my wild and wacky December, here’s a peak at my more distant past.

You see, dear readers, I used to be a scientist. The kind that had hypotheses and tested them by performing experiments. The kind that could control variables. The kind whose analysis involved graphs and things like sum squared error.

Lest you or I forget that this is where I come from (and hopefully where I will return one day), here is the work of which I am most proud.

CAPTCHA Recognition Poster

Zack and I did this project for our Machine Learning class last fall. You probably want to check out the poster in larger form–if you click on it you will be transported to the Flickr page where you can get the larger version for perusal.

And there is a slideshow, as well! The text got a little borked going from PDF to whatever slideshare uses, but if you overlook the wonky text, you get the idea.
