I’m really interested in studying the relationship between the human mind and Artificial Intelligence. By studying neuroscience, chemistry, biology and physics, and applying its principles to computer science, a new form of AI will be developed in future years which will be able to rewire itself within autonomous learning from Hebb’s method of “learning from experience.” Such AI systems will be achieved by learning the functionality of the connectome, or in other words by studying and creating a map of the brain and ultimately of the mind itself, hence allowing us a way to artificially establish a platform with self learning abilities and autonomous thoughts. 
This summer I look forward to learning the Java programming language, which will allow me to take a first step forward towards my programming knowledge. I really look forward to working along more experienced programmers that will help along my learning process of such language. I look forward to applying programming for the realization of an online platform. This summer i hope to achieve good proficiency in the Java programming language along with enhancing my Adobe design skills. I hope to achieve better communication skills, a better understanding of working within a group for a unique and common goal, and having a first-hand experience on a programming language such as Java.
