In the next few days, 2020 would be history. I just took a stock of my 2020 projects. I do a lot of things with startups, companies, designs, advisory, etc. A Kenyan bank CEO woke me up yesterday: he wanted my perspective on something. Today, I share that my best project in 2020 is codenamed Silicon Organism. It is an integrated circuit which is designed to mimic human biology.
Some founders have gone to a venture capital firm in California, and in their pitch, they referenced my work. The VC asked them to reach out to me. They made me happy – and we got into a long-time good party. And we delivered the chip. It goes into the heart of an AI system which I cannot write much here.
On my design table, there is a notepad. It was given to me by the Mayor of Moscow when he invited me to Russia. That was the only time I met a politician who appreciated the power of engineering. Whenever I tear a piece, it reminds me that those who know will appreciate – a really good circuit.
