Green Team: Praecipio Consulting's Global Climate Crisis Response Plan

By Praecipio Consulting on Oct 25, 2019 10:01:43 AM

Next April will mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, but we just couldn't wait six more months to share our company’s exciting news—starting November 1, 2019, Praecipio Consulting's Work from Home policy is changing. Beginning October 14, "Work From Work" is optional with the exception of two important days of the month. In addition, our workspace is transforming into a much smaller, more intentional workspace emphasizing climate responsibility and a more fulfilling and sustainable workstyle. The company will facilitate, enable and encourage more meaningful interactions; going for quality over quantity of face time; reducing the cost to the environment and cost of our team members' time and money. These are major changes due to our choice to operate in a way that supports our Global Climate Crisis Response Plan - all in an effort to reduce our company’s overall carbon footprint. Our Global Climate Crisis Response Plan was shared internally at Praecipio Consulting at the end of October and will be shared more widely shortly thereafter.

What, why?

My favorite class in college was Neural networks for non-linear control systems which was way out of my league but I wanted it, so I powered through. I majored in mechanical engineering and studied computer science and electrical engineering because of a passion for robotics. This class blew my mind. Life being what it is, I went off to build a career which took me away from machine learning until recently. Things have come a long way in the intervening years and I wanted to recreate the approach we used in this class.

The animations that we created were what most captured my imagination because they would show the controller learning and improving.
