About Me

A Young AI Researcher and Entrepreneur

I am a 16-year-old AI researcher and entrepreneur passionate about achieving human-level artificial intelligence and ensuring a positive future for humanity alongside AI. I have spoken at various conferences about the future of AI and what questions we need to be asking in order to prepare for such a future.

I am a Research Assistant at the University of Waterloo Kimia Lab where I developed a new Artificial Neural Network to be a more realistic abstraction of the human brain (paper coming soon). I am also working with SickKids Hospital in Toronto, creating a computer vision system to expedite the hospital's diagnostic and drug discovery processes. In addition, after placing first in the Fall 2018 Innovation Sprint, I am working with St. Joseph's Hospital in Hamilton to implement a new system I designed which helps hospitals track, assist and collect metrics from stay-at-home patients and their caregivers.

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