Dave Nottage alerted me to a paper I've allegedly collaborated with him and Albert Einstein (HTML / PDF).Reads like gibberish though it brings back certain memories, and off I go to search for an earlier work of mine. Ah, here it is! Developing a neural network model: The recognition and conversion of bitmap characters into ASCII code.

Neural networks is something I learnt in the late 90s, while compiler technology is something I learnt in the late 80s. My copy of the Dragon book is still lying around, though no doubt, I've forgotten everything there is to know about compiler technology, except regular expressions which I've used a few years ago to write a IDE feature for a xmldoc functionality.
