ABOUT ME

Richard Everts

Full Stack Digital Creative

The last 30+ years has seen a lot of changes in tech, and I started designing custom rigs in the age of the 286.  I've always focused on what tech can do to change the world. Recently, I closed another venture and turned down work so I could focus on the Sugey One, a home AI for disabilities like Alzheimers and autism. I'm dedicated to Deep Learning, General Artificial Intelligence, Distributed AI, and the transformation of computers in service to the dignity of humanity.
