Teacher, maker and tool-builder Ali Momeni is our subject for the week. Ali is well-known in several communitied, having been an active coder/composer while at UC-Berkeley, creating large-scale word at the University of Minnesota, and now active with ArtFab at Carnegie Mellon University. He works in Max, Pd, microprocessors and (as we hear in this podcast) a wide variety of industrial fab machines. He is also one of the most engaging people you'll ever meet - whether in person, or in an interview like this.
One of the recent projects that Ali finds himself involved in is a library of machine learning tools. The link for that library is: https://github.com/cmuartfab/ml-lib. If you are interested in more complex mapping of data to actions, you will want to dive into this collection of tools. He is also active in the ongoing development of the Udoo board; you can find more information here: http://www.udoo.org/
