About Me:
The reason I know anything about UAV's is due to Wayne's tyranical need to build
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

Why I am here

numberI have been goaded, threatened, and even been privy to a few bribes to just join this community.

First of all, I just want to say that I am not an aviation nut like my friend wayne garris, but since wayne garris is my friend I happen to find myself working on his UAV projects from a device programming standpoint and more.

While my eyes may glaze over when the topic deals with aerodynamics and UAVs, I am extremely interested in artificial intelligence and its application inside the world of drone aircraft. At present we are scrambling towards the future.

I am speaking as a coder, of course, while I may have a breadboard attached to my laptop, the oscilloscope is on wayne’s table.

First, here is my background:

I have been programming since I was thirteen. I figured college was for those who didn’t take the time to skip class in high school and go to the library and read a book(please take that lightheartedly, I have nothing but respect for education). I have spent years programming inside the windows environment and can do some seriously nifty things inside Microsoft Office.

I developed a passion for artificial intelligence through science fiction and game design.

I am here with my perspective in where I want to go with AI. My hope is that I can meet some folks interested in what we can do in the present and relish the challenge of maybe even breaking new ground and designing the future.

I expect to leave my mark in thought technologies.

Hey, who out there is coding AI?

My basic assumption is that AI programming today is, at best, a chess program. What I mean is that everything is based off of pre-existing data and a decision tree that handles each situation. In a chess program that means that there is most likely a database of some sort that chooses a move based upon its likely hood of leading to a check mate. Maybe the chess program is capable of assessing which move it should make based upon the chess rating of… Continue
