Brief Biographical Sketch:

I attended Splash at Stanford as a high school student at Saratoga High, and I'm hoping it will be as rewarding to teach as it was to learn!

M4959: Leveraging Nature's Great Ideas to Make Intelligent Decisions in Splash Spring 2016 (Apr. 09 - 10, 2016)
MarI/O [] is a program made of neural networks and genetic algorithms that performs well at Super Mario World. In this course, I will offer a more technical discourse on neural networks and genetic algorithms than the one provided in the MarI/O video, and together we will generalize these approaches to solve more significant problems. I'm open to suggestions for what games you want to beat or what problems you want to solve! I'm trying to keep the class small; however, if we reach the limit and you're really interested in the class, just shoot me an email at and we'll make something work!
