I co-authored a paper last year that was recently presented at the 29th AAAI (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence) conference in Austin the weekend of 1/28/15. Depending on what I choose to do this year, it may be the only computer science paper I have any part in.

The project was a collaboration with some really great engineers and researchers. I was by far the smallest part of it but I was proud of the work I contributed.

The project measures the noise level of rotorcraft flight patterns. From the abstract:

“We introduce a system, called NORA (Noise Optimization for Rotorcraft Approach) that allows for the computation of trajectories that simultaneously solve for acoustically quiet patterns that also avoid land sensitive areas.”
