OMSCS: Artificial Intelligence for Robotics

I took AI4R in the Fall of 2019, and thoroughly enjoyed the course format and the lectures. The lecture format is designed for an intensive 6-week course, much shorter than the 16 weeks we get in the OMSCS program. However, don’t let that fool you – you’ll still need to stay on top of the projects and coursework. I did think this was one of the more fun courses to take, and felt I could have taken a second course (along with working full-time).

The homework assignments are relatively straightforward, Continue reading “OMSCS: Artificial Intelligence for Robotics”

OMSCS – Embedded Computing Optimization

I just finished up a course called Embedded Computing Optimizations with the OMSCS program at Georgia Tech, and it was extremely interesting, because it’s a topic that I don’t have too much hands-on experience with. I’ve come into Computer Science starting from high-level languages like Ruby, so diving deep into embedded concepts, such as the the optimizations that come with using different architectures based on Continue reading “OMSCS – Embedded Computing Optimization”

Where do you want to end up?

As we go through our lives, we are *hopefully* gauging where we are verses where we want to be. Someone once told me that going through life is like being a pilot flying from one location to another: though there may be deviations off the normal flight path and storms along the way, Continue reading “Where do you want to end up?”

Mentor (noun)
  1. an experienced and trusted adviser.

I’ve seen the idea of mentorship/mentoring thrown around a lot, mostly those new to a particular field. However, I see it often in the Continue reading “Finding a mentor”
