I am a mathematics enthusiast, although I have no formal training. What I know is what I've been able to glean from searching Wikipedia.

I enjoy writing computer programs, although I have never been employed as a programmer. I've used two-dozen different programming languages, but my current favourite is Haskell.

I also have an interest in various areas of science.

On top of all that, I'm also a bad musician, a mediocre dancer, and a very bad juggler. :-P

@FooBarrigno Certainly supervised learning is notorious for getting "stuck" in local optima...

comment Solution of an algebraic equation
I asked Wolfram|Alpha for a solution at $a=\frac12$. The answer it gave me was closed-form, but it looked completely insane. (I.e., far too wide to fit the whole solution on one line of text.)
