My wife and I returned to our home in Sedona Arizona in June. I had been
managing a deep learning team for Capital One in Champaign Illinois (in
the research park at UIUC). I am now retired so we moved back into our
house in the mountains in Central Arizona.
re: retirement: while I will might still do small interesting consulting
jobs, I am retired. I am spending my time volunteering at a local food
bank, hiking and kayaking with my friends, and I joined a local writers
group to give myself a shove to finish a sci-fi book I have been working
on for a long time.
I released a second edition to my Haskell book this week and I have
edits for a new edition for my Common Lisp book that I will push to
current readers soon, but I plan on no longer writing new technical
books. I have written 22 technical books - probably sufficient :-)
Personally my passion is still studying artificial intelligence and deep
learning but this is now research for my personal pleasure.
