Collaborate With Me
I have a lot of open projects that I've never finished, stuff like:
Protocols and tooling for self-research
Low-footprint low-latency server monitoring
Automatic machine learning
LLMs + sensors for dynamic tantric & meta meditation
Starting a tea shop in the south island of New Zeland
Figuring out ways to integrate acrobatic hammocks into shibari
Personalized models for automatic literature curation and summarization
Thymus imaging using electric impedance tomography
Starting a hedge fund that relies on 3-6 months investment horizon and mixes public & private asset classes
Allowing people to take perfect drone selfies anywhere anytime for 50 cents
Figuring how to extract signals in a systematic way from the literature on nutrition and supplements
Building better (able to make predictions & give recommendations) data analysis on top of Oura ring
Experimenting with "banal" ML algorithms and seeing how much they have to scale before matching SOTA networks for a given task
Reviewing anything in a standard-data-format heavy way on a distributed network
Prediction market search engines
Making Galactica actually useful for building a similar model that is
This list is non-exhaustive but if any of them sound interesting to you or "in the right area" and you want to help with them, you should message me.
If you wish to collaborate with me at Eureka, you should probably talk to the cofounders, not me. If you’re interested in what we do and are interesting you should shoot me an email and I’ll make an intro.
I might even be willing to pay you to work on some of these, especially if you are a bright young person in their mid-to-late teens looking to do stuff rather than get into the academic ratchet.
I am also low-key hiring a part-time programmer to work on my open-source side projects for me, I think my alpha is in spotting people that aren’t established in their career yet and don’t have the institutional papers required to get a foothold. If you are in this position we can probably have a very beneficial collaboration for 1-2 years where:
I can mentor you can connect you to better mentors in areas you like.
I will pay you better than any alternative you’d get.
You will get “experience” and “exposure” in order to go an find higher paying (though maybe less interesting) work.
If you want me to work with you on your own projects:
I have very little time for side projects, doubly so if they involve me writing code as a central task. So please don’t feel offended if I say no, it’s not that I don’t like your project.
I will probably help you if I like you, and I like the project, and I see that you are listening to my advice and pulling 90% of the weight yourself, only bringing me in when I'm really needed.
I might also help you if you are someone I deeply admire or like, working on something I think is critical, and I am gaining status brownie points from helping you out.
I don’t do paid work at the moment.
If anything above interests you, get in touch by applying to work with me.
