Even though I moved from Art to Dart recently, still proud to have been part of the team that brought you Android Pie. My Kotlin compiler optimizations even made it to the press release!

I was trying Mars this night, but unsatisfied with the results, I took a picture of the moon too.

An amazing drone show at Intel, at the headquarters where I used to work.

As a CS student, a long time ago in a country far away, I was very interested in AI (Artificial Intelligence), and not just for chess playing programs. In fact, if it weren't for my professor convincing me to continue with compilers and high-performance computing, I may have ended up specializing in the field of AI. Perhaps lucky for me, since AI has gone through many rounds of boom-and-bust.

Nowadays, however, machine learning in general, and deep learning in particular really seem to have taken AI in a very promising new direction. Since I feel machine learning will become an important, if not mandatory skill for computer scientists, I decided to buy a few books on TensorFlow and familiarize myself with the new paradigm.

For starters, I bought the three O'Reilly books below (other recommendations are welcome) and plan to do a few follow-up post on this topic.

Every now and then, I still get requests for a copy of The Software Vectorization Handbook. However, since Intel press is no longer in operation and I really depleted my own stash of books to ship to interested readers, I decided to make a soft-copy available on Amazon (hopefully acceptably priced). If time permits, it may even inspire me to update some of the materials.

After three years in the ART (Android RunTime) team, it was time for a change within Google. So this Tuesday I am moving to the Dart compiler and runtime team (yes, I have a soft spot for projects that contain 'art'). So from now on, I may be bugging you to reconsider your Javascript/PHP choices in life....
