Name: Jim Motta Organization: University of Nevada, Reno (CS426) Profile: Jim Motta is currently a senior undergraduate student in Computer Science
at the University of Nevada, Reno. For the last three years Jim has held a Systems Engineer position with International Game
Technology where he supports and maintains the IGT progressive gaming infrastructure. Mr. Motta is a C/C++, QT 4.0.1 programmer
with experience in Database management and Network Security. Jim is currently working on the security functions for goSmart and
their interfaces into the GUI. As a team member, Jim is the Project Manager and is responsible for the overall product, as well
as, maintaining the timeline for the project. His coding contributions to the project so far include working on the database
communication, security routines, error checking implementations, Deployment package, and the GUI.
Name: Fares Qeadan Organization: University of Nevada, Reno (CS426) Profile: Fares Qeadan is currently a senior undergraduate student in Statistics &
Computer Science (dual major) at UNR. Fares holds a Research Assistantship in the Math & Statistics Department, he worked for one
year in STATLAB (UNR Statistical Consulting Unit) and is currently doing research with Dr. Anna Panorska. For the last two
years Fares has an internship in the Center for Health Data & Research, Nevada State Health Division as a biostatistician and
SAS programmer. As an international student Mr. Qeadan was honored to receive the International Student Award for two consecutive
years (2003-2004), and during his stay in the United States, Fares has received more than 10 scholarships and awards.
Fares is a C/C++, Qt, Scheme and Prolog programmer and has a rich knowledge in programming and modeling using statistical/mathematical
software such as Maple, Matlab, SPSS, Minitab and SAS. Faresí contribution and role in the development of goSmart consists of
programming the scheduling engine, database communication, networking, real-time and security aspects of the software and their
GUI. Fares is currently working on communicating with the motion sensor and his ultimate goal is to implement his own original
encryption algorithm which can be used in the goSmart software. As a team member Fares is in charge of reviewing (inspection/testing)
all new implementations into the software.
Name: Siraj Malik Organization: University of Nevada, Reno (CS426) Profile: Siraj Malik is a senior at the University of Nevada-Reno.
He will be graduating in May, 2006. His main interests in computer science involve programming graphical applications using openGL.
After college, he hopes to pursue a future in the video game industry, writing graphics intensive software. Mr. Malik is also
planning to attend gradute school in the field of computer science in the near future. Siraj is presently learning PHP and JAVA
programming and web-development. Siraj's main involvement in the goSmart project was developing the graphical user interface and
being part of the overall maintainance of the system.
