On my mind right now 👇


GANs

Deeply (no pun intended) interested in this field from a technical as well as commercial standpoint.


Brain Computer Interfaces

Machine Learning and Deep Learning are trying to create the human brain in computers. Should it not be simpler to create a computer for the human brain? This field needs more exploration and I'm ready to dive in!


A better social media experience

The internet is a wonderful thing. It has literally enabled someone from a small corner of the world to learn what the rest of the world is doing and also allowing me to pick up skills/knowledge that would have otherwise been practically inaccessible.

But modern means of communication have still not taken full advantage of this medium. The problems with current-day social media are well known and I feel it's about time better communication channels are built.


Climate change

This one is a no-brainer. The Earth is home to 7.5 billion people and countless other organisms. We cannot 100% prevent it but we can still do our best and find ways to deal with the consequnces of past actions. I believe entrepreneurship will be key in this because economic incentive to deal with the consequences are enormous!


Space Exploration

Another big thing on my mind is the exploration of other worlds. Phenomena like climate change and meteorite impact only tell us that life is highly vulnerable and prone to total extinction. Making life multiplanetary is our best hope. Maybe we are the solution to the Fermi Paradox. (Heavily inspired by Elon Musk)
