I was born in Calgary, and raised on an acreage nearby. When I was five, my family moved to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where I was schooled almost exclusively in Spanish. After nearly seven years, we returned to Canada. I currently live in Cochrane, Alberta, with both my parents and a younger brother. I am attending grade 10 at Cochrane High School where I am a member of the Sustainable Development Committee and the Debate Club. This year I won my second gold medal out of two years at the Calgary Youth Science Fair, but it is my first visit to the nationals. Also this year I was best in my school for the Cayley math competition. In 2005, I won best in my school for a Scholastic Challenge competition. After High School, I hope to study Engineering, Neuroscience or Physics. My personal interests include math, science, photography, film-making and nearly anything to do with computers.

Shortcut Connections in Artificial Neural Networks
Division:Sciences de la terre et de l'environnement / Aucun
Région:Calgary Youth
Ville:Cochrane, AB
École:Cochrane High School
Sommaire:This project was a study of whether short-cut connections improve the efficiency of Neural Networks. These are programs that attempt to learn patterns in data and to generalize from them. The idea of short-cut is relatively unexplored, as it breaks the traditional layered architecture. These shortcut connections proved beneficial, reducing the time spent training and the amount of computations done by the computer.
