Barak Pearlmutter, PhD
I'm the principal of our Brain
and Computation Lab.
Adaptive systems, neural Networks, how the brain works, machine
learning, acoustic source separation
and localization, neuroscience, programming language design and
implementation. You can view a short demo
I am now a professor in the Hamilton Institute at NUI Maynooth in Co. Kildare, Ireland,
with a primary appointment in the Department of Computer Science.
I was a professor in the Department of Computer Science at
the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, with adjunct
appointments in the Department of Neurosciences and the Department of
Electrical and Computer Engineering.

I was co-organizer of the Abbadingo One DFA Learning
Competition, which ended on Nov 15, 1997. If you are interested
in language induction you should have a look. A follow-up continuous
competition called Gowachin has been
running for some years, and is able to automatically track
improvements in the state of the art.
