About me

I am a corporate and personal trainer in AI – Artificial Intelligence, Machine and Deep Learning technologies. I am the lead developer and chief Artificial Intelligence researcher and development contact for The Black Swan Hedge Fund. I develop AI systems used in medical applications as well as train medical personnel in the use and development of Artificially Intelligent technologies. Since starting up and then successfully selling the first internet based college in Africa – CyberCollege Kenya – I have taught more than 3,000 students who’ve graduated from my training with skills in AI, Machine and Deep Learning. Some of my students have gone on to create mobile payments services, micro-loaning apps, crytocurrencies of their own and even trading robots that make them money even as they sleep.

My interests include human nutrition research working through the analysis of randomised controlled trials using AI/Machine & Deep learning technologies to discover the one true diet that all humans should be following. My favourite programming languages are LISP, Python, C/C++. My favourite Operating System is Ubuntu Linux. In my spare time I design, build and fly microlight aircraft and autonomous drones, travel across Africa in my Land Rover Defender camping wherever and whenever I get the chance and write materials such as this site here and a hugely popular memoir To The Brink and Back which you can download from here for free.

I am the developer of the Open Source Kenya Speed Reading and Speed Learning Technologies and the originator of Recall Patterns – a Mind Mapping/Neural Net/Neuroplastics technology.  My specialties include Venture Capital Finance, Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain technologies, Algorithmic Trading Systems, Information Security, Telemedicine and Telehealth, Artificial Intelligence Applications in Medicine & Finance and Ubuntu Linux Kernel Development.

I am a secular humanist, transhumanist, singularitarian and cypherpunk. For the past 22 years I have run a highly specialized and very successful algorithmically traded hedge fund that specializes in cryptocurrencies, gold, silver and derivatives in 5 stock exchanges on 5 continents. I was lucky to have entered the cryptocurrency world when Satoshi Nakamoto’s paper was published and quickly mined 10,000 bitcoins of which I still hold more than 1000. You can learn more about my investment processes here and if you study with and under me and prove yourself I’ll even let you into how my artificially intelligent code does what it does making money for me and my friends even as we sleep.

Humanists are those who hold to the Humanist Manifestos. This is the title of three manifestos laying out a Humanist worldview. They are the original Humanist Manifesto (1933, often referred to as Humanist Manifesto I), the Humanist Manifesto II (1973), and Humanism and Its Aspirations (2003, a.k.a. Humanist Manifesto III). The Manifesto originally arose from religious Humanism, though secular Humanists also signed. Like some of those that signed, I am a secular humanist.

Transhumanism (abbreviated as H+ or h+) is an international intellectual movement that aims to transform the human condition by developing and making widely available sophisticated technologies to greatly enhance human intellect and physiology. Transhumanist thinkers study the potential benefits and dangers of emerging technologies that could overcome fundamental human limitations as well as ethical limitations of using such technologies. The most common transhumanist thesis is that human beings may eventually be able to transform themselves into different beings with abilities so greatly expanded from the current condition as to merit the label of posthuman beings.

Singularitarianism is a movement defined by the belief that a technological singularity—the creation of superintelligence—will likely happen in the medium future, and that deliberate action ought to be taken to ensure that the Singularity benefits humans. Singularitarians are distinguished from other futurists who speculate on a technological singularity by their belief that the Singularity is not only possible, but desirable if guided prudently. Accordingly, they might sometimes dedicate their lives to acting in ways they believe will contribute to its rapid yet safe realization.

A cypherpunk is any activist advocating widespread use of strong cryptography and privacy-enhancing technologies as a route to social and political change. Originally communicating through the Cypherpunks Electronic Mailing List, informal groups aimed to achieve privacy and security through proactive use of cryptography. Cypherpunks have been engaged in an active movement since the late 1980s.
