Version 1.7 a new dawn
Speaker: David Kriesel
David is a computer scientist. He has a passion for biology and social insects. In real life, he works as a systems engineer at IVU Traffic Technologies (ivu.com) on topics in the DevOps context.
David gained quite a bit of international recognition for bringing the Xerox scanning bug to public attention, followed by consequently forcing its correction. He studied in Bonn, Germany, where he also lived for nearly ten years; further living places include Brussels and Ithaca, New York (the latter because of a research stay at Cornell University).
In computer science, especially the biology inspired topics like neurocomputation, machine learning and swarm behavior make his day; he also wrote a 250p ebook ("A Brief Introduction To Neural Networks") which he made available for free at his home page in German and English language.
