Danny Gho


I work at P-waver Inc, a company working in the field of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) and Earthquake Early Warning System (EEWS). Before Pwaver, I am a master student at the Dept. of Civil and Construction Engineering NTUST, TW under the supervision of Professor Pei-Ching Chen. I had my bachelor degree in Civil Engineering from UK Petra, ID. Sometimes I code, seasoned in Python, MATLAB, and Go. Also passable in C-family. Previously I worked at the mining and foresty industry.

My academic and personal interest are in the field of Articial Intelligence and Computer Simulation. Like how the machine augmented the power of human muscle, computer has the power to augment the power of human brain. Human muscle are limited by the law of physics, while the power of human brain is limited only by imagination. Combining the power of human brain with the multiplicative power of computer would allow mankind to advance its civilization to a higher level.

Aside from AI and Comp-Sim, I am also interested in the field of Service-Learning and Uncertainty Quantification.

25 Rules for Adult Behavior

John Perry Barlow (1947-2018)
    1. Be patient. No matter what.
    2. Don’t badmouth: Assign responsibility, not blame. Say nothing of another you wouldn’t say to him.
    3. Never assume the motives of others are, to them, less noble than yours are to you.
    4. Expand your sense of the possible.
    5. Don’t trouble yourself with matters you truly cannot change.
    6. Expect no more of anyone than you can deliver yourself.
    7. Tolerate ambiguity.
    8. Laugh at yourself frequently.
    9. Concern yourself with what is right rather than who is right.
    10. Never forget that, no matter how certain, you might be wrong.
    11. Give up blood sports.
    12. Remember that your life belongs to others as well. Don’t risk it frivolously.
    13. Never lie to anyone for any reason. (Lies of omission are sometimes exempt.)
    14. Learn the needs of those around you and respect them.
    15. Avoid the pursuit of happiness. Seek to define your mission and pursue that.
    16. Reduce your use of the first personal pronoun.
    17. Praise at least as often as you disparage.
    18. Admit your errors freely and soon.
    19. Become less suspicious of joy.
    20. Understand humility.
    21. Remember that love forgives everything.
    22. Foster dignity.
    23. Live memorably.
    24. Love yourself.
    25. Endure.

When we see "internet of things", let's make it an internet of being.
When we see "virtual reality", let's make it a shared reality.
When we see 'machine learning', let's make it colloborative learning.
When we see "user experience", let's make it about human experience.
When we hear "the singularity is near", let us remember: the Plurality is here.
