Software to Download

I have been writing commercial computer software for PC's since 1994. Available below are a selection of programs from my various years of programming right upto the present day.

You'll probably notice the common these to most of these programs - Computer AI - as most programs use various elements of Computer AI to make up the program, from Computer Opponents for games, to AI mapping of the human brain to demonstrate learning and puzzle solving.

Most of these programs have been published before (on various software licences), but are now (several years later) available for use as a free download.
