Jared Sylvester

Computer science grad student. Morlock. Dude.

jared sylvesterI'm a doctoral candidate in the Computer Science Department at the University of Maryland College Park. My dissertation is on neural networks, and specifically attempting to get biologically-reasonable networks to perform tasks traditionally done by symbolic AI systems. I also do work in analyzing and modeling social networks for the Smith School of Business' Marketing Department, and I've been active in Machine Learning and Data Mining.

Outside of my academic research, I'm interested in economics and digital art. When I finish up my degree in a year or so I hope to find work in computational finance or strategy consulting. Until then, I'm living in Silver Spring, MD, with my wife and my Westie.
