About Tom

Hello! I’m Tom Larsen.

My professional interests include applications of computer science to human learning (see e.g. spaced repetition tools like Anki) and applications of computer science to actuarial challenges[1] (particularly ways to use machine learning in health and care insurance).

I have a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, and I’m commencing a master’s degree in actuarial science in 2017. I dabble in artificial intelligence, debates from the Deist Controversy, and the history and philosophy of science, among other things.
