I'm the Lead Maching Learning Engineer at Flashfood Inc,
I hold an MSc in computer science from Brock University, with a research area in computational intelligence, genetic programming and evolutionary computation.
Areas of interest...
Functional programming by day, Lambda calculus by night.

I'm interested in various flavors of distributed and concurrent computation, often from the perspective of programming languages:

  • data-centric,
  • data-intensive (big data),
  • eventually-consistent (edge computing)

Past areas of focus have been computer vision, computer vision, classification, feature selection, prediction, pattern recognition, scheduling, combinatorial and numerical optimizations. For the past few years, I have been focussing on Machine Learning, Computational Intelligence, Data Mining & Engineering and Big Data.

I currently manage Data Structures And Algorithms, Expert Machine Learning, and object detection on social media platforms.

Feature Selection And Classification Using ALPS Genetic Programming
Anthony Awuley, Brian Ross
This paper presents a new algorithm called Feature Selection Age Layered Population Structure (FSALPS) for feature subset selection and classification of varied supervised learning tasks. FSALPS is a modification of Hornby's ALPS algorithm - an evolutionary algorithm renown for avoiding pre-mature convergence on difficult problems. FSALPS uses a novel frequency count system to rank features in the GP population based on evolved feature frequencies.
