The crudest curriculum vitae crows and flaps its wings in a style
peculiar to the undersigner.
I doubt whether you can even give your telephone
number without giving something of yourself.

There is a very small chance I might be able to undertake research with a current Cornell undergraduate during the 2018-2019 academic year. (I do not have spots available for students at other institutions.) If interested, send me an email that includes a complete transcript (unofficial is fine). Prerequisites are some background in machine learning and to have programming experience at least at the level of CS3110.
