A word with François
What is your field, and how did you get in?
Professionally, my field would be software engineering/AI. Art-wise though, I do mostly digital art. Also I write stories sometimes.
Where do you want your Journey to lead you?
My mission is to make a leader and a creator out of YOU. And I'm going to start by getting you motivated and inspired!
What would you like to achieve within the next year?
I'm on quest to solve the problem of AI. That will my area of focus for the time being.
So far, how have you been developing your skills?
On my own, on the Internet. Bill Gates famously said at the 2010 Techonomy conference that "five years from now, the best education will happen on the web". Actually I think that's been the case since ~2005.
What are some of your favorite writers and books?
William Gibson, Asimov, PK Dick, Lovecraft, GRRM... I prefer SF over fantasy though.
What is your favorite website? ; )
