- Operational Anomaly Detection
- As software operations becomes
increasing complex and increasingly dominated by undesigned emergent behavior,
hand-coded alerting thresholds on a single metric are proving inadequate. The
next generation of alerting will be multidimensional and learned. I am seeking

an open license to facilitate algorithm testing and development, who will then
benefit from open-source algorithms tuned for their use cases.

- Statistics for Personal Health
- Experiment design becomes
more challenging when there is exactly one subject available, yet this is
exactly the situation we face in identifying food allergies and assessing
individual medication and supplement effectiveness. How can we make
more powerful and more usable tools, especially for use by people who may be
cognitively impaired because of the very problem they are trying to diagnose?
