Hi I'm Hunter Livesay

I've grown up in the church, I research machine learning, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Vermont, eventually moving to Idaho when I was 8. I picked programming when I was 12 and never stopped learning. Now I'm attending college at BYU-I pursuing a degree in Computer Science and research Machine Learning whenever I can. I take great joy in being to build a program that I can show others and convince them in might just be a human doing it. I enjoy running and climbing, and the surrounding landscape of mountains and caves permits me to do this whenever I feel like it. So long as when I feel like it is not during winter. When those winter months come I play the piano, over the years I have gotten good enough that I can now preform if need be. I'm now preparing to serve a mission in Taiwan.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon for three reasons, or perhaps subset of reasons might be a better way of saying it. The first is a logical argument, the world is a place of reason, things happen because other things lead them to happen. Which is to say that true random is impossible, at least as I view the world. So how could it be that such impossible and random events could of occurred to create this utterly perfect world with which to allow life to blossom. My belief in Christianity and Mormonism in particular makes the world simpler. The second is more of an ethical reason. My place in the church allows me to help others, and be inspired myself by them. I am a better person because of the church and its doctrines. The last reason is something that words can't really convey. Through prayer and study I have seen the truthfulness of the church, it is a feeling. Although the word feeling poorly described it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in both formal and informal ways. Formally I play the piano and assist in preparing and executing activities for the youth. I greatly enjoy being able to play the piano in this setting. Informally I preform service for others in the way I think Christ would have. To assist in helping those who are in need of help.
