Distributed Computing Systems provides free and open source software, with products for service-based systems and intelligent information processing. I currently develop my own software and you can find full details on the following pages. Before starting this site, I worked for several years on University-based contracts, both as a software engineer and as a researcher. I have published a number of papers in related areas and also written one book. I am currently available for freelance work in programming, research, writing, or consultancy.
A summary of my work experience is as follows:
- Experienced software engineer, with the design and development of full products.
- Main programming languages are Java and C#, with some web-based and mobile knowledge.
- Algorithm development, particularly for Artificial Intelligence, distributed or scientific systems. Also test programs and platforms.
- Server-side programming and Windows-based GUI development.
- With an academic background, I am also strong in research and technical writing, where my research interests include Artificial Intelligence (autonomous, agent-based, cognitive or neural systems), heuristics, search or query processes and distributed information systems.
Being actively engaged in the research, I would be interested in any sources of funding and/or collaboration.
My software is listed on the following pages. The first two products are what I use to sort out information. They can save a lot of time, maybe as part of a small business. A short summary is as follows:
Licas is a distributed service-based and AI framework, with many useful features for building your own system. There is also a set of free business applications.
