Q: What inspires you today?

A: We are at a fantastic juncture in the scientific journey of mankind. It is so interesting to witness what we can accomplish with Artificial Intelligence mainly owing to data processing capabilities with GPUs, data collection capabilities from sensors and the Internet of Things providing us ways to create digital awareness of our surroundings. The applications for these abilities are usually discussed around robotics and self driving cars but they extend much beyond and even into areas that we feel ethically conflicted to dive into. This also adds to why this is a landmark moment in scientific evolution as we explore the boundaries and scope of technology mixing with the typically untouched sociological and behavioral aspects of humanity.
