First of all, thank you so much for taking the time to read this newsletter. I really hope it brings value to you and is a means to stay in touch with each other.
I’m S 🧠FIA, an ambitious teenager building innovative projects with Synthetic Biology and Artificial Intelligence. Just for growth, I also innovate at The Knowledge Society, host the 2045 Podcast, write articles, and read. Here's a brief story of what I did in April. Click on the images to find out more :)
The computer vision field is simply fascinating to me. To get started, I worked on the popular "handwritten digits recognition" project with CNNs. I'm starting to think that AI isn't as complicated as I thought. At least not yet...
All of our team is incredibly grateful to each of you who has helped us make this happen. Thank you so much for believing in us and our project! Update: we are working on a solution involving the plant microbiome 🌱.
Dedicated to the experts, innovators, and mentors, who made a huge impact on me this month. Thank you! 🙌
Andrew, it was awesome "philosophize" a little about synthetic biology with you. Main takeaway: a system that allows us to get better data to learn from and create better models. Is the cell the best model of itself? 🤔
I'd heard about that young guy who worked with Drew Endy and builds with bio 👀. Thank you for your amazing pieces of advice. You asked THE question: "what do you want?" I'm still trying to answer it...
Simon, I just had such a great time talking with you. I got a really unconventional perspective on what my professional career could look like. Thank you for the book recommendation too!
Living medicines were the first topic that caught my attention in synbio. Still, there are some questions that research papers simply couldn't answer. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with me, Mark!
If the limit on progress is the ambition of the most ambitious, what can we do to push it beyond? That question took me and some friends to conceptualize a Cell to Computer Interface made with nanotech.
I'd wrongly stereotyped Elon Musk as "someone with a lot of hype around him". This book showed me what working on something bigger than yourself looks like, and what it means to use technology for something useful.
