About M&I

My name is Caio Lente, I’m the author of this blog. I’m a Computer Science undergrad at the University of São Paulo specializing in artificial intelligence and an intern at Platipus, a jurimetrics company based in São Paulo, Brazil. If you’d like to get in touch, please send me an email.

M&I is hosted on Github, and was created using Hugo, Blogdown, and an adaptation of the Black and Light theme.

The name “Mind & Iron” comes from a dialog in I, Robot by Isaac Asimov where Dr. Susan Calvin describes the elusive nature of the robotic brain:

“To you, a robot is a robot. Gears and metal; electricity and positrons. Mind and iron! Human-made! It necessary, human-destroyed! But you haven’t worked with them, so you don’t know them.”
