About Me

A Young AI Researcher and Entrepreneur

I am a 17-year-old AI researcher and entrepreneur striving to develop the future of technology. I have spoken at various conferences, inspiring many to think about the future of AI and explore which questions need to be asked to prepare for human-level artificial intelligence.

I am conducting research at the University of Waterloo to further the AI community’s efforts in reaching human-level AI by developing new Artificial Neural Networks that aim to behave more like the human brain. I am also developing a new image search technique that increases cancer diagnosis accuracy while working on solutions for some of Canada’s top hospitals: creating a computer vision system to expedite diagnostic and drug discovery processes at SickKids Hospital in Toronto and designing a remote system that will assist stay-at-home patients and caregivers at St. Joseph's Hospital in Hamilton.

My goal? To spark the next wave of human innovation and help humanity reach a new evolutionary step.
