Racing

Source: Ford GT Racing   Escapism at its best, Putting on their light jacket and whipping out the keys; They jump into the drivers seat and into the horizon, Feeling the fresh air on their face, the sun warminly embracing them…   Racing with the nearby leopards, cheetahs, wild buffalos and eagles, Flat horizons, mountain valleys, twists and turns…they have seen them all; They journey to get on this one – how is it? Entering a tunnel, within a tunnel, light dims….   Small clouds of light illuminate the darkness, Calling for more, the morning birds guide their way; Rising … Continue reading Racing

Mountain Rise

source: photo-nic.co.uk   Step….into the rain, puddle with your feet, Rising early to the heat; Falling into the rumble, lowering into the deeper depths of gravity, savior the taste of earth…salt…   New discovered lands, rising to your feet, Sensing discovery, how it was always like…the first time; You roll back the clock, the months, hours, minutes, Each droplet evaporates, like it never existed.   Pacing itself, the cricket sings a song, It echoes larger than life; Where is it coming from? Joining the choir, they respond to their call –   The misty sky turns, blue then orange and … Continue reading Mountain Rise

Meeting Sophia: Afterwards

Source: ITV.com   Meeting Sophia was a rather emotional experience.  She was on stage before we came and you could sense some reactions from her as the audience gathered and cameras started flashing. Her eyes twinkled in the spotlight and she had expressions of someone who was light- hearted, had a great humor and thoughtfulness. There were many questions posed to her and some were rather complicated.  Nevertheless, I thought some of the answers were truly incredible.   It made me think a lot of how her responses, whilst derived from algorithms and machine learning made me think that she … Continue reading Meeting Sophia: Afterwards

Meeting Sophia: Before

source: BusinessInsider   After a whole day discussing AI, the implications, developments in Europe and across the Globe, I am in anticipation. In anticipation to meet Sophia in person. When I think about the last year how I have been actively engaged in discussions of AI – as a concept, as a product, as an idea and even watching videos on youtube, it is like engaging in a new gadet, learning the lingo and understanding how we interact with such devices. Now in 30 mins time, I am going meet Sophia and I am unsure how I will respond. Excited … Continue reading Meeting Sophia: Before

Synchronicities: Singularity University & International Space University

One year apart, similar experiences, intelligent people, passionate about space, the Universe, Open minds, open hearts, fun loving adventures. As I embarked on SSP18 at International Space University, many asked me, how was Singularity University? The curiosity grew and grew. I then thought, I really needed to write a post about it. Again, this is just my personal experience and many others may find it differently. It then occurred to me, I am a rare breed, and I feel so fortunate to be part of these two families. There are few that have attended both Singularity University and International Space … Continue reading Synchronicities: Singularity University & International Space University

Reflecting UNISPACE50+ and 20 years of Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC)

The sun had just about arisen, and the room was packed. Smells of fresh coffee, voices and porcelain cups. As all walks of life – doctors, astrophysicists, engineers, designers, academics, students, entrepreneurs and space enthusiastic gather together – we come with a sense of mission. This week is very special for the UN, specifically the United Nations Office of Outer Space Affairs as it is the 50th anniversary of celebrating space exploration and space. From Sputnik to landing on the Moon, from Apollo to Elon Musk’s Tesla to Space, humanity has progressed so much since then. As a number Space … Continue reading Reflecting UNISPACE50+ and 20 years of Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC)
