I’m highly interested in how cognitive psychology and human universals combined with AI and Machine Learning are driving technology adoption and experience personalization. I recently read two books (Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products by Nir Eyal; Contagious: Why Things Catch On by Jonah Berger) and am fascinated by the intersection between technology, business, and cognitive science.
