I'm Cisco, CCNA


Good deal..Which track?
CCNP Collab and CCNA Wireless among other things for me.
Im prepping for my first attempts on CCIE Collab Lab coming up.

I am an electrical engineer by education (MSEE) but work as a computer scientist in practice. The independent research and development projects I have been a principle investigator on, over the years, are typically spearheaded by PhDs but I'm far too lazy to go to school to earn the moniker.

So anyway... I've been developing embedded AI software for a long time for the military for autonomous drones but since 2011 I've been developing similar AI for the automotive industry in the ADAS/autonomous vehicle area.

My present role is taking the complex radar data coming from short-range and long-range sensors in the bumpers of vehicles and turning them into a real world model of the world. It's called the "environment model" and my team uses complex mathematical algorithms, fuzzy logic, and neural nets to do the data processing. The software determines where other vehicles, pedestrians, guard rails, trees, etc....then performs sensor fusion with cameras which see road signs, road lines, bumpers (lights etc) in real time. Once you have all that data and combine it with other vehicle telemetry you enter the realm of performing functions such as lane keeping/warning, autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control etc....and on into experimental self-driving vehicles.

I had to move from the defense applications which I was focused on in the 90's and 00's (which were very interesting and I had a blast working with the folks from Carnegie Mellon, MIT, JPL, etc) to this rather mundane commercial application of AI in cars (yawn) due to Obama's cuts in defense ("thanks Obama!"). I used to make autonomous drone robots (UGV and UAV)... fun stuff...you know, the terminators that will kill us all one day when google (skynet) becomes self-aware. hahahaha Actually not that funny and probably likely but I digress.

I've worked in a few other areas too but as you can imagine I can't get into any details.

I find this thread interesting too, because over the many years I have been a member of this site I have seen plenty of pseudo-science and BS. Also, I have seen many claims that all the members on here are uneducated...which is also clearly BS. I do believe in many conspiracy theories and am not such a pragmatist that I don't believe in the many meta-physical aspects of this world including UFOs, ghosts, ESP, etc.

I basically quit posting on this site in 2011 because the site became more about politics which gets my blood boiling and a couple times I almost got kicked off for having some strong opinions...like that ObamaCare if passed would cause medical prices to go up.... guess what, I was right, they have gone up. I won't use the language I used back in 2011 as I don't want to get the red flag of death again and have to apologize to the moderators.


Glad to meet you.

Self employed salesman for the last 10 years. Prior to that I was in college. By college, I mean that I tended bar for 5 years.

You would be amazed at the education you get from slinging cocktails 8 hours of the night. It actually led me to the vocation I have now.

I have tons of stories from behind the bar. I owe a lot to my time there.

I left, and two years later the bar closed.

Cool ..you gonna go any farther?
The CCNP Collab was 5 exams but I also do Cisco Collab all day long so it was easy to prep for those.
The CCIE Collab written isnt brutal..the lab on the other hand..ugh.

Glad to meet you to, that's awesome stuff you are into, and yes that was why I did this thread, I've met to many people that are highly educated and do amazing jobs and this is just my unequivocal proof that this website really is full of the kind of intelligent people that do incredible things.

As soon as I can open my schedule for it I'll be chasing CCNP, then CCIE.

I knew all you guys/gals had brilliant jobs (think i put most of my job history is on page 5-6?), I need to get back into engineering or something related.

Think my head wonders when i'm not the boss lol.

Cool thread OP, can't seem to star/flag using my phone or would have

I was a waitress, worked at a local pharmacy, waitressed again for a little over a year while also becoming a home health care aide. I left waitressing because I don't handle being spoken down to, sexually harassed or disrespected because I'm Puerto Rican (in that case). Decided "I should try fast food.. it's easy work, pathetic money but fine for the time being.." and wowie was I not prepared. I'm an adult, but was yelled at by a 15 year old this morning...

Moving on to work with disabled children/adults.

Potentially taking a few more civil servant exams for the hell of it.

I am in law enforcement myself, but I spent some time learning about positional localization. Do any of the systems you've worked on (or with) handle inclement weather?
