Aliya Grig
Founder and CEO, Cosmos City
There are two things in the world that are still not understood: the Universe and human consciousness. My goal is to understand how human consciousness functions and, through this understanding, create an artificial consciousness that will aid in unraveling the mysteries of our Universe. I believe the true task of AI is to usher humanity into a new era of evolution, helping us uncover novel perspectives and horizons, both within ourselves and in the Universe.
