Hi, I am Roman and I am really interested in programming and building computer systems (software engineering). The point of the SAsSy project is to make it easier for people to understand what is happening inside a computer program when it tries to create some plan. Computers normally “think” in terms of various symbols and this is quite difficult to understand. My role on the SAsSy project is to write a program that can explain what the computer was “thinking” when it was creating a plan. The way I intend to go about it is to create a translator that translates the program’s symbols into English so that people can understand how and why a particular plan was chosen. This process of translating symbols into words is called Natural Language Generation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_language_generation).
Apart from software engineering, I also like swimming, photography and most of all rock climbing.
