Life Story

Drafted from other content on this site using GPT4:

My name is Jacob Valdez, and my passion for artificial intelligence (AI) and technology has driven me throughout my life. I’ve always been fascinated by the potential of AI and its applications, and this passion has shaped my career and education.

I began my journey in computer science during primary school, learning VB6 in 5th grade and moving on to C# a year later. As I progressed through middle and high school, I continued to explore various programming languages and technologies, including HTML/CSS/JS, TypeScript, and Python. My curiosity and drive for learning never waned, and I became increasingly interested in the development of AI and its potential impact on the world.

I received my A.A.S. in Mathematics from Navarro College in 2018, and then went on to earn my B.S. in Computer Science from The University of Texas at Arlington in 2022. During my time at UTA, I worked as a student research assistant in various capacities, gaining valuable experience in fields such as machine learning, robotics, and web development.

My employment history includes working as a software engineer at Motio Inc, where I developed Soterre for Qlik Sense, and as the founder of Limboid Inc, a startup focused on developing humanoid robots. Although I had to put Limboid on hold to find a stable source of income, I continued to work on AI projects in my spare time.

One of my most ambitious projects is the Fertile Crescent, an ecosystem of libraries aimed at cultivating human-level artificial intelligence. This project encompasses a wide range of subprojects, including the development of hybrid programming languages, frameworks for unsupervised deep learning, and intelligent runtime code generation.

In addition to my work on the Fertile Crescent, I am also developing Limboid, a project focused on creating affordable and modular humanoid robots. These robots, known as Limboids, are designed to be assembled in various morphologies, allowing for a wide range of applications and uses.

Throughout my career, I have faced numerous challenges and setbacks, but I have always remained committed to my passion for AI and technology. In the next five years, I hope to be deploying humanoid robots across the world, contributing to the advancement of AI and its applications in various industries.

As AI continues to evolve and reshape our world, I am excited to be at the forefront of these developments, pushing the boundaries of what is possible and working to create a brighter future for all.
