Hi there! I am a member of the research staff at Numenta. We are applying principles of neuroscience to the world of computer algorithms to create intelligent systems.
Check out my recent episode on the Data Science at Home podcast where I discuss neuroscience, computer algorithms, and their interplay. (Also available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.)
The MISE Foundation aims to expose bright high school students in Ghana to the latest developments in STEM fields. At one of their recent annual summer programs, I served as a research mentor and led a select group of students through a project on designing algorithms to generate human face sketches. We also had long discussions about the ethics of such technology as its uses are highly controversial today. I hope my efforts will motivate these students to one day become leaders in these fields and transform the global R&D landscape.
