ferrouswheel is a person of many hats. He started off building large-scale ecological simulations for his PhD, then got drawn into helping build a artificial general intelligence framework called OpenCog, this was later integrated with unscripted, next-generation AI computer game characters in Hong Kong. More recently there was some entrepreneurial rah rah activity, returning to New Zealand, and building giant spinning death traps for the Wellington Lux light festival. Also some backend software development to pay the bills.
