Welcome to my Home Page

Hello, my name is Joel Smith. I am 19 and I live in England. Here are some of my interests.

Web site links

Here are some links to web sites that I think are cool. I hope you find them interesting.


AI and Alife


The Basic Neural Network is the first network I have written. It is written in C and should compile under any Linux/Unix system. The program does not include any learning algorithms. Click here if you wish to download bnn-1.3.


Genetic Algorithm Template, is an attempt to write reusable GA code. I found that every time I wrote a program involving GA's I would have to write the GA code from scatch. I got sick of reinventing the wheel, as it were, and decied to write GA code that I could reuse for a specific project with only minimal modification to the GA part. The current version is a very early release. It does not currently contain any documentation on how to use it, but if you flick though the code you should be able to figure it out :) Click here if you wish to download gat-0.1.3


SoundBlaster Pro Driver

I have recently started playing around with AtheOS. AtheOS is a GPL'ed, natively graphical, POSIX compliant, operating system. More information can be found at www.atheos.cx. Recently I have been working on a SoundBlaster Pro driver for AtheOS. For more information got to my AtheOS page.

I hope you find the code interesting/useful. If you make any modifications to any of the programs I would love to hear about it.

If you want to get in contact with me, email me at joels at mobyfoo dot org
