Frenetic Array

The intersection of logic and imagination.


frenetic: fast and energetic in a rather wild and uncontrolled way.
array: an impressive display or range of a particular type of thing.

My life has always been a frenetic array of sorts; jumping from one interesting topic to the next. Along the way, I picked up a lot of interests in computer science, mostly in Artificial Intelligence.


Frenetic Array started in 2016, where I threw all my ideas at the wall and saw what stuck. Overwhelmingly, my favorite things to write about were artificial agents, genetic algorithms, and machine learning — all subsets of AI. In 2018, I dedicated Frenetic Array in its entirety to it.

If this is your first time, the most recent post is probably not a good place to start. Contents holds a table of contents of all the things I write about; I suggest starting there. All of the code I use can found under Projects.

Who am I, personally? I am Illya Starikov. I've always had an interest in computing and math, since the DOS-era. I took that interest to Missouri S&T, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. Now, I am working as a Software Engineer in Kansas City. That's me above.

I use some tools that help me run my site. If you're wondering what they are, you can find them here.
