Where knowledge comes together.
Computers can paint now. And goats like people who smile at them.

I sometimes also break down academic writing and discuss its relevance to our daily lives. I read the jargon - not just the abstract - so that you

How were computers used to show that Shakespeare may not have been a single author? Will it be ethical to have babies on Mars? What does satellite imagery have to do with economics? (A fair bit, as it turns out!)
If at least one of those questions interests you and makes you want to google something, stick around and subscribe for updates!
