Professor Hank Dietz

About

<p>I'm a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Kentucky, best known for things like having built the world's first Linux PC cluster supercomputer in 1994. However, my group (Aggregate.Org) really is about improving computing systems by making the various SW+HW components work better together, which we do for many systems that are not supercomputers. I bought a MakerGear M2 3D printer primarily to make camera parts in support of computational photography work we're doing... and now I have a second one personally. Of course, 3D printers are computing systems too, and we hope to improve them in the same ways we have improved other computing systems. My Dad founded and ran a manufacturing company, and in the late 1970s I was the one who learned to use and set-up their first CNC (a Bridgeport Series 1), so I've got a little tool and die making background in my deep dark past....<br></p>
