  • Kodethon: A cloud development environment.
  • Categorizer (Demo): Organize coffee flavor attributes into trees. Used to develop the new coffee flavor wheel!
  • Lexical Distinguishability: What is the essence of code?
  • Bovine Respiratory Disease: Track the grooming behavior of steer (male cows) to better diagnose those that suffer from bovine respiratory disease.
