The Difficult is that which can be done immediately; The Impossible is that which takes a little longer.

Area of study

Cloud Robotics

The theme of my dissertation thesis is The Cloud technologies and Artificial Intelligence, on which I am working under the supervision of professor Peter Sinčák.

The main course of my study is to get to know the available cloud technologies currently available, at least for now. Also, the advent of powerful mobile devices (smartphones), which are readily available for the masses, should be utilized.

Pet projects

I am currently learning about programming applications or the Android operating system. The main reason is that because I am using it (my first smartphone was HTC Desire) I see the potential behind it. Not only for the commercial benefits, but because the Android became the mainstream operating system and is used by millions of people. The today smartphones, even the ones on the low-end, have enough processing power to be able to be used for the programs implementing some of the tools of artificial intelligence. To create personal assistants for the various tast, to automate repetitive tasks, and so on. Also, due to the connection to the Web, there is always possibility to use cloud technologies and services to further enhance experience.

Another pet project is working with Lego Mindstorm. Creating various vehicles, controlled by human with the use of computer or mobile phone, or controlled automatically by the program. Especially when we use the smartphone to act as a brain for the Lego NXT brick, we have input from several sensors from phone (gyro, compass, gps, microphone, camera) and from NXT brick as well (sonars, light sensors, touch sensors).

The last free time activity that is consuming most of my time and resources besides school is developer in Wolfpack Systems. The aim of Wolfpack Systems is to create mobile apps, recent (and as of yet only) accomplishment is receiving a "Most Likes" award in the BuddyPaddy contest with the Win 8 phone app MediBuddy.
