Work on Open Source / Electronics
I am looking for people who want to create great things together, through an open source project, or some type of electronics like Arduino. I have a lot of spare time and I want to use it to create circuits and learn different programming languages. I will soon be interviewing with Microsoft (and I will also exchange Simbi for you to help me improve my programming skills for the interview). But my end goal is not to simply be an employee of a company, or to do some repetitive task that does not make me think. No, my end goal is to create projects like a 3D printed jetpack or projects like a device that can connect to any bluetooth device and create an open source bluetooth music stream that will allow me to have surround sound with each of my devices. (Wonderboom does something similar to this but I do not understand how. If you know how this / Bluetooth 5.0 works, message me and I'll trade for simbi!)
I'd also love to learn more about artificial intelligence and machine learning. It's always been a fantasy of mine that one day, humans will be able to upload our memories into a circuit and literally turn ourselves into anything we want. Sort of like an emotional robot (because honestly, isn't that what humans are? emotional robots?)
I honestly have no idea where to start with any of these ideas. I don't know what I need to learn or what questions I even need to ask to get to a point where I can actually start on any of these projects. I don't know where I want to specialize in computer engineering and I honestly want to avoid specialization if I can (but I'll probably get sucked into it anyway).
If you want to help me, if you have ideas for me, if you want to work together, both of us doing what we are passionate about without concerns of money, please send me a message because this community seems like a wonderful group of intellects who I would love to work with.
