Other Output

  1. I produced a 8 technical reports before 1995 while in Italy, I have coauthored 63 technical reports between March 1995 and May 2001 while at Birmingham, and I've produced tens more technical reports at Essex. Here is a small subset of my more recent technical reports.
  2. I have submitted the following short paper to the ``Mathematics: History and Overview'' section of arXiv.org:
    Riccardo Poli and William B. Langdon, A simple reformulation of Riemann Zeta function, arXiv:math/0701160v1 [math.HO], January 2007.
  3. I produced a 40 minute video with Bill Langdon on genetic programming and the halting problem available in Google Videos. I have also produced an 11 minute video on our Brain Computer Interfaces work at the University of Essex available in Goolge Videos.
  4. In conjunction with the ``Field Guide to Genetic Programming'' book, I've released a software implementation called ``TinyGP''. There is also a blog and a Google group associated to the book.
  5. I have invented an intelligent adaptive control system for computer mice and pointing devices. A patent application sponsored by the University and the Iceni Seedcorn Fund LLP was filed in February 2004 (GB0403416.1). This was turned into an international patent application in February 2005, but later the University decided to let it expire for some reason.
