Founded 5 companies in 4 different countries. Published 5 books. Speaker in numerous events. And always offering a different approach.
Lately my focus has been Deep AI, Robotics, and Genomics.
With AI, I founded a company which uses computer vision to identify household disposed products
With Robotics, I developed a robot which followed light, a CD recording totem, etc
Finally, with genomics, I worked with comparative genomics in order to find promising DNA strands in sugarcane
I founded startups in UK, Spain, Brazil, and USA, and actually lived in over 10 countries
I play the keyboards and currently have a Casio VZ-1, a Samick KK1, a Novation Xio 49, and a Technics EX60 organ
And I published an album called Calabi-Yau, based on string theory and probably the only AI generated album in the world
In fact, string Theory is an attempt to reconcile General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics into a "Theory of Everything". It claims the world is actually made of 10 dimensions, 6 of which "coiled up" to infinitesimal levels during the Big Bang, leaving us with the 4 (3 plus time) which we can see.
As modern as it may sound, Kabbalah, and concretely Rabbi Isaac Luria, taught in 1500 that God emanated from His infinite ten Divine lights or powers through which He created the universe. Each of these ten powers ("Sefirot") can be understood to be a dimension of reality, and they are all interconnected in what is called "The Tree of Life". Here, also, 6 Sefirot are invisible and 4 are visible, plus many more matching numbers.
In fact, the statistical probability of having the numerous similarities between Kabbalah and string theory occur by chance is nearly impossible and this album celebrates that. Thus, each track is named after a Sefirot, and its name comes from the Calabi-Yau topological space created by mathematicians Eugenio Calabi and Shing-Tung Yau which was able to show how this 10-dimension space would look like, as the picture shows.
Finally, modern AI allows computers to create songs with surprising beauty, and this may very well be the worlds first attempt to create an album entirely composed by a computer. To this end, a system is trained with tracks of the kind one wishes to create, and Machine Learning algorithms creates them based on that data. This is a project which I had around for over 10 years, but only now it finally found the tools to create it.
