Tyson Bailey

Hi, I'm Tyson, I'm a (computer|software|crazy|ml|ai) (engineer|thinker|problem solver|researcher). I have a lot of interests, embedded systems, mobile programming, space travel, you name it. I received my bachelors in Computer Engineering at the University of New Mexico. I am currently enrolled in the OMSCS program with Georgia Tech. The biggest thing I learned is that school doesn't make you what you are, YOU do. I've got a strong North Dakota work ethic. I strive to be an innovative thinker. I am always reading up on new technologies, and looking for ways to apply them to either existing or new projects. I am an excellent communicator check out my blog, and I take a proactive approach to everything I work on, I decided that running test scripts manually at work was crazy, so I automated it. I don't like to sit around and leave stuff broken, I fix stuff. I even started a YouTube channel to help others in the OMSCS program with short and useful tips. Anyways there are links to my social things down there on the bottom, chat with me on twitter, or let's collaborate on github! If you'd like to hire me for full time or freelance you can email me first name tyson@onaclovtech.com or contact me via twitter.

My "Informal" Education or Things I've done (for fun):

Leaderboard

I built a leaderboard for a little friendly competition for my Knowledge Based Artificial Intelligence class. It's a work in progress but what isn't?

KBAI Leaderboard

Christmas Tree Light Show

Discovered a really interesting project called lightshowpi, it allows you to play your lights to music

Feliz Navidad

Android Apps

I've built a numerous of apps, both funded by myself and by others.

Self Driving Power Wheels

Still a work in progress, but I stripped down a power wheels, added 3 motor controllers, a raspberry pi, and a actuator

Reinforcement Learning

As part of a project for school we used Deep Q-Learning a reinforcement learning algorithm to learn how to control a Lunar Lander

60 Seconds to Success in OMSCS

I decided to start a Youtube Channel to help other students out in the program, its a short 60 second tip or two which I try to post on a weekly basis.

Mini Forge

I like to hand make my presents each year for my wife and my anniversary. 2016 is bronze, so I've made a forge

Edge and feature Detection

I applied edge detection and feature detection to video for fun.

RaspberryPi

I've written a handful of things in Python, text to speech for my Raspberry Pi, and a way to play a bunch of TED Talks in a random order. I even setup a retro game emulator.

Text to Speech

Arduino

I've hooked up my Arduino to a Bluetooth Serial Module, and communicated to my phone (and controlled it) with some buttons in a glove all over bluetooth.
