I'm a designer and code magician, doing Research and Projects at the intersection of Machine Learning, Human-Computer-Interaction, Generative Design and Mindful Creativity. I'm interested in a range of ideas, but my focus lies on building tools for enlightenment.
Samim.io is my main space on the web.
It is an initiative to reclaim my publishing from web-silos and do more narrative engineering.
The site is made with flow (code soon).
