I believe in three anchors to our society: 1. Continual learning and open sharing of knowledge, 2. Informed leadership
3. Collaboration. I trust the part AI has to play in the enhancement of humankind. My role is to lead and actively participate in cutting edge research on both innovative and applicative AI while mentoring persons into leadership in research and society.
