Welcome! This website is basically for showcasing some of the things I've made.

I'm a -year-old guy who lives in Melbourne, Australia.

I'm interested in anything to do with algorithms, but particularly AI.

Hobbies include learning new things, playing indie games, and telling people they're wrong on Reddit.

Some of my other stuff on the web can be found on my GitHub or my cloud VM.

If you want to get in touch, your best bet is to send me an email at jakerodneybarnes [at] gmail [dot] com.

If you'd rather, you can try one of my "social" accounts:

Inspired by reddit user shortysnmn2010, I scraped the front page of r/f7u12 to gather some statistics on successful submissions. Unfortunately the server crashed, and missing a large chunk of time messes up the data averages so I abandoned it with just some graphs of what I had collected. However, he ended up giving me his data and now I have graphs of that instead.
