Personal Philosophy:

The more one moves away from one's own nature, the more one must justify one's own existence. 


It is a humbling starting point to acknowledge that in life you don't know why you consciously exist (exempting a material explanation of being such as ancestry or genetics). In the absence of a reason, one requires meaning and purpose to fill its void.  Without over thinking it, my most meaningful experiences have been a clear articulation of impressions of the present.

Visualization of a robot's "artificial brain" for solving a Rubik's cube: each row corresponds to the activation values of a policy network's LSTM cell state (1024 in total) over 1500 time steps. Dashed lines mark a successful cube re-orientation, solid lines mark a successful face rotation.
