  • Ever wanted to have a robot to do your research for you? If you are a scientist, you have almost certainly had this dream. Now it’s a real option: Eureqa, a program that distills scientific laws from raw data, is freely available to researchers.

    The program was unveiled in April, when it used readouts of a double-pendulum to infer Newton’s second law of motion and the law of conservation of momentum. It could be an invaluable tool for revealing other, more complicated laws that have eluded humans. And scientists have been clamoring to get their hands on it.

  • This is a simple computer program that plays Go, but not very well. I wrote it while learning the Go programming language. It's mostly of interest as a starting point for people who might want to write Go robots in Go, and as a example of a reasonably well-commented program written in the Go language.

  • Readers of my blog probably know that I’m a bit into functional programming languages (F#, Erlang, Clojure, Haskell, etc) among other topics, but what you may not know is that I’m a huge JavaScript fan as well. Since I began in the industry (professionally anyways), I’ve been using JavaScript to knock out some pretty interesting solutions. Over the years, many people have tried to abstract over the language, taking such approaches as taking a statically typed language and compiling it to JavaScript, but when it comes down to it, I prefer dealing with the natural language of the web, which is HTML, CSS and native JavaScript.
  • Eureqa (pronounced "eureka") is a software tool for detecting equations and hidden mathematical relationships in your data. Its primary goal is to identify the simplest mathematical formulas which could describe the underlying mechanisms that produced the data. Eureqa is free to download and use. Below you will find the program download, video tutorial, user forum, and other and reference materials.
  • HTML5/canvas demo, 500 particles to play around with.
