These are my stories
The novel explores the symbiosis between AI and the human soul and raises the questions of how machines and humans might live and evolve together in a not so-distant future.
In Teaching Machines How to Cry, I explore the story of Alba, a young woman seeking answers for a feeling of longing she can’t explain, and M, an AI prototype.
Alba was a child when she first spent time with M, until they were unexpectedly driven apart. As an adult, Alba slowly realises that M might hold the answers to her life-long yearning when she remembers that the last time she felt whole was as a child when she taught M how to cry.
I now live in Porto with my two sons.
After living in four continents, I consider myself a citizen of the word.
I spent most of my career working with the United Nations as a humanitarian, and as a sustainable development practitioner. In those years, I led ground-breaking work on the ethical complexities, and potentials, of artificial intelligence.
