Welcome to Heaton Research. This site is the home of the Encog Project and the blog/research site of Jeff Heaton. This site is primarily about the Encog Machine Learning Framwork and my other projects. Here you will find information about my books, articles books and source code. The primary topics that interest me are Machine Learning, GPU/Grid Computing, big data, and real world applications of these topics. The programming languages that I primarily focus on are Java, C#, C/C++ and R. I am also beginning to cover Scala, F# and to some extent Groovy.
