This project aims to build a marine exploration robot that has the following qualities: Can be used by anyone Is light weight Can be controlled in various ways (remote control, oculus […]

Dev Day presentation on Computational Archaeology

Software companies often have days where developers either present a topic of their choice or get together to create prototypes of their innovative ideas. Some of these events are held internally and others, by larger companies, internationally. Some examples of popular companies that do this are: Google: Holds an international developer day once a year […]

Computational archaeology videos

I decided to youtube some computational archaeology while I waited for dinner to cook. Here are some of the resources I found: Videos Remember the “complex systems simulation CAA special interest group” I mentioned in one of my previous posts? They had their first meeting which included presentations and a long discussion. You can check […]

Computational Archaeology – May links

I disappeared for a while as I was busy wrapping up the first draft of my thesis. Now it’s time to catch up on some blogging. Here are some links relevant to computational archaeology you may have missed during my absence: What can we learn from computational archaeology: How stuff works has a short article […]
