Hi there and welcome to my personal web page. My name is Marek and I am currently graduate student at Purdue university. My background is in Computer Science and Math.
On this web you can find some of my projects and in the blog I write about my life experiences. You can also check out fractals gallery for beautiful images and potentially wallpapers for your device or living room.
Mausr - Marek's Unicode Symbols Recognizer
Have you ever wanted to easily find any unicode symbol like →, ×, ≠, ℝ, or »? Then Mausr is what you are looking for! Mausr is a library and web interface that performs unicode symbols recognition from hand drawn input using simple neural network. The library implements back-propagation learning algorithm as well as basic non-linear optimization algorithms such as gradient descent and iRprop. Read on ...
Is 16.7 million colors enough?
Majority of our devices today can display 16.7 million colors. This may sound as a lot but sometimes human eye can notice a difference between two neighboring colors. I have encountered this problem while creating some fractal images. The solution to the limitation is usage of dithering. This article describes the problem and presents a simple solution. Read on ...
