I have designed and worked on GCC MELT (a high level domain specific language to ease development of GCC extensions, free software, GPLv3+). I'm working in France, near Paris, at CEA, LIST as a research engineer. I'm now working on bismon (a successor in spirit to GCC MELT), with funding (in 2018-2021) from H2020 CHARIOT and DECODER projects.
I am an enthusiast of free software, and know quite well Linux (which I am using since 1994)
I think that high-level languages are important, and that declarative knowledge-based systems should be more used (see J.Pitrat's blog ...)
You might contact me by an email to
net but please give the URL of your question in your message.
I was born in 1959, I am a man, a husband, a grand father, and have a PhD in CS (artificial intelligence, 1990, Paris LIP6) and graduated from ENS Cachan.
My native tongue is French. My parents spoke Russian to me. In Russian my full name is Василий Дмитриевич Старынкевич ; in English my first (christian) name is spelled Basil. If you send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org use French, or English, or Russian and mention the URL of your question. My Russian spelling is so bad that I dare not use it in emails (so I would answer in English to any Russian email).
PS. I intend to continue working on persistent reflexive systems during retirement. I find H2020 projects excessively bureaucratic: its paperwork is really overwheling.
