We're happy to announce the winner of this year's Total Good Intelligent Machines grant! Thunder was awarded $1000 this week to support a summer of data science work for Hack Oregon. He plans to mine campaign finance data and contributing to Hack Oregon's open source code base. And he'll contribute to Total Good's opensource [machine intelligence utilities](http://github.com/totalgood/pug-ann) and hyperparameter optimization technology. He's already begun contributing by getting the pug-ann documentation in order and getting up to speed on the various Hack Oregon projects.

Zeke, Thunder, Joe and I are comparing the performance of several Hyperparameter Optimization algorithms (i.e. autotuning) for a presentation at the Wolfram Data Summit in September.
