I am CEO/Co-Founder of Reasonal Inc. I am passionate about solving some of the most important problems related to spread misinformation and lack of civility on online discourse using Machine Learning. Previously, I was a PhD student at Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems.
Reasonal Inc., a new startup I co-Founded, is focused on addressing the growing problem of spread of misinformaiton on the internet. The mission of Reasonal is to bring more clarity to the public discourse.
I will be participating in this Symposium organized by German Consulate in Toronto, and will present some aspects of my research on misinformation and information integrity on the web.
Our paper, "Enhancing human learning via spaced repetition optimization", has been accepted at Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.
Therefore the seeker after the truth is not one who studies the writings of the ancients and, following his natural disposition, puts his trust on them, but rather the one who suspects his faith in them and questions what he gathers from them, the one who submits to argument and demonstration, and not to the sayings of a human being whose nature is fraught with all kinds of imperfection and deficiency.
Thus the duty of man who investigates the writings of scientists, if learning the truth is his goal, is to make himself an enemy of all that he reads, and, applying his mind to the core and margins of its content, attack it from every side.
He should also suspect himself as he performs his critical examination of it, so that he may avoid falling into either prejudice or leniency. Ibn al Haytham 965-1040
