Besides my main research, I am also working on these amazing projects:
The Senses and Art Project offers three paths to mindfulness using an educational tool designed to address heightened apprehension while the implications of Covid 19 unfold. Each path: Touch with the Eyes; Feel the Space in Music; and Movement and Emotion, builds awareness of how our senses can be called upon to create calm, focus, and a feeling of connection and engagement with others. The target audiences are curious minded, educated, adults who may be living with children. Their anxiety may be triggered by the inability to safely visit meaningful places, they may be fearful of coming into contact with people and they have grief that uplifting, shared cultural events will disappear from their lives.
2. An MIT introduction to artificial intelligence and Latin American as project lead - sponsored by Google
There is a need in Latin America to understand artificial intelligence systems and how they are used in the real world. This project aims to build an Introductory free course on AI specifically targeted for the Latin American people interested in learning what AI is, what is possible and not possible with AI, and how it affects our lives – with no complicated math or programming required. Course in Spanish and Portuguese.
