Work Information

I no longer work at the University of Toronto; however, my account and web page here are unlikely to disappear any time soon.

Now, I work in the Toronto office of Numetrix Inc., and can be reached directly at drewv@tor.numetrix.com (sorry, no externally available web page yet).

My former projects at U of T included the Xerion neural network simulator. The simulator is available free of charge to Canadian (and other) Industry and researchers. The source code for Xerion is available via anonymous ftp from the U. of T. Computer Science Department ftp site.

I also worked on the implementation of the Delve project. To quote from the Delve documentation:

Delve is a collection of datasets from many sources and a standardised environment within which this data can be used to assess the performance of procedures that learn relationships based primarily on such empirical data.
