About the Author:

Roberto Ulloa

Roberto Ulloa has a diverse academic record in multiple disciplines within the field of computer science. Currently, he is working with artificial societies as part of his PhD thesis at the University of Western Ontario. He obtained an MSc degree from the University of Costa Rica and taught programming and computer networking there. He has earned a living as a web developer, working with Python/Django and PHP/Wordpress. He collaborates with various researchers while also working on his own projects, including his blog (http://robertour.com). He constantly worries that the Internet has already become aware of itself and that we are not able to communicate with it because of the improbability of it being able to speak any of the 6,000-plus odd human languages that exist on the planet.
