My name is Aleksandra (short - Ola) Draszewska, I’m 23 years old Master Degree Cognitive Science student from Poznań Poland, part time big-data analitic. I dream about moving to Berlin. I have ADHD so I’m either very hyper, info-dumpy and helpful, or tired/busy and inactive. If you catch me - use all my time and attention, please!
I’d say I’m antithesis of an idea-person. I am an idea person who has very wide scientific/IT background, I can help to verify and implement ideas you already have, and I know what ideas of mine can be implemented with resources available.
I speak C1 english, C2 for IT/science, I either have my own big knowledge base or can summarise/translate from english and polish into “understandable” almost any scientific paper: intelligence (including artificial intelligence), linguistics and cognitive science in general, formal logic, mathematics, algorithmics, data analysis and statistics, biology (including some medical fields), evolution, paleontology, simulations (including AI, machine learning, brain functions, thinking and reasoning), neural anatomy and anything related to brain, conscioussness, thinking, reasoning and perception.
Currently working as part time data analitic/statistician/researcher in medical field, I work on big (1-9BG of pure rumbers) data of DNA and gene expression, esp.related to immune system and auto-immunological diseases. I use all the tools available for current problem (manual statistics, python, R, statistical tools) I have a cheap laptop which only strength is 32GB of RAM, so I’m extremely good with optimising processor and memory use.
My IT competences are:
beginner/mid: C++, python, R, machine learning, AI
Professional: data analysis, statistics, simulations, resource menagement
I also can help with concept art and icon/merch design, including crotcheting proof-of-concept plushies (feel free to order customs for low prices lol)
What I would want back from you?
Throw topics and ideas at me, everyhing related to anything I wrote about. I want to learn C# on mid/junior level and make a master (or even further!) degree using my work here on Thrive. I’d like to become lead designer for stuff related to simulating a nervous systems - from single neurons and perception, brains and thinkining, to the evolution of conscioussness, language and culture.
What I like: meeting new people, food, science, video games, books, video essays (I got into team and game because of one!), writing essays and scientific papers, true AI, interesting IT/programming problems
What I dislike: the current state of discussion around AI. Call Chat GPT anything more than machine learning linguistic tool and you’re up for a rant of your life.
