Back living in Sedona Arizona and enjoying my retirement

My wife and I returned to our home in Sedona Arizona in June. I had been managing a deep learning team for Capital One in Champaign Illinois (in the research park at UIUC). I am now retired so we moved back into our house in the mountains in Central Arizona.

re: retirement: while I will might still do small interesting consulting jobs, I am retired. I am spending my time volunteering at a local food bank, hiking and kayaking with my friends, and I joined a local writers group to give myself a shove to finish a sci-fi book I have been working on for a long time.

I released a second edition to my Haskell book this week and I have edits for a new edition for my Common Lisp book that I will push to current readers soon, but I plan on no longer writing new technical books. I have written 22 technical books - probably sufficient :-)

Personally my passion is still studying artificial intelligence and deep learning but this is now research for my personal pleasure.
