Black Geometry - Podcast

Podcast Summary

The Computational Renaissance is coming! and we need to tell the world about it. This podcast will explore the development and application of emerging technologies which will fundamentally transform the human condition. We are eager to tell a human story of discovery, passion and scientific endeavor. Our aspiration is to reveal the mathematical beauty that binds us all.

The Story

Show Host:

Tristen is an explorer, writer, and technology diplomat. In 2016 he founded the Machine Learning Society and grew its worldwide memberships to over 6000 Data+Scientists . In 2018 he launched the CO Network, a Sci | Tech collaboration platform engineered to accelerate global innovations in Science, Technology and Culture. Tristen's practice of cooperative game theory has brought together Governments, Academic Institutions, Fortune 500 companies and thousands of scientists to act on solving the world's biggest challenges.

Tristen hosts a series of Science & Technology focused events and conferences in New York, Boston and San Diego that blend the line between Art, Science and Culture. He speaks publicly about developing Smart Cities that live and breath through technology via Synthetic Infrastructure.
