About the speaker (LinkedIn):
Ahmed is an AI geek and a serial entrepreneur who started his engineering career building image-processing software for NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope while at Cornell University. He participated in the DARPA Grand Challenge, which resulted in the world’s first self-driving cars. His technical work extends from developing AI for UAVs, hacking car engine control units (ECUs) to make them go faster, and designing and building scalable solutions for the travel industry such as self check-in and FlyFi for connectivity in the air. Seeking to combine his passions in business and engineering, Ahmed started Coders, Hackers, and Founders (CHF), a secret group for techies and geeks to meet and collaborate in Melbourne, Florida. After CHF gained traction, this group led to the formation of TrepHub, a non-profit/open source version of YCombinator in Florida’s Space Coast which helped bootstrap and launch over 30 startups. He is currently the CEO and Founder of YiB.io, a mobile application that puts all social communications in one place.
I can’t recommend Debt: The First 5,000 Years highly enough. I think it’ll give you insights into just how money works if you don’t already know that at a deep level. Being a geek, being college-educated I had no clue if you have an engineering degree or even a PhD in engineering, this isn’t necessarily something that you learn about.
Hi! It’s Ahmed and I am back at the mountain top. I apologize in advance for the video quality, I’m just holding the phone with my hand this time. I’ve been coming up here for a couple of days and it is an absolutely gorgeous California day today. It’s going soon so I thought, hey why not post up another book review? I’ve been reflecting quite a bit on just the state of the world, state of business and I’ve been thinking particularly a lot about debt, what debt means.
Hi! It’s Ahmed again with another book review. I know we’re in the middle of coronavirus and everything else that’s going on. And I’ve been under the stay-at-home order from the governor so been staying at home for the last three weeks now. I was self quarantined before because I was afraid that I may have been in touch with someone with coronavirus. I was flying a lot so this is the most fun that I get to have, get outside and make a little video.
So in the last week there’s been a lot of news. Finally, the administration seems to be waking up to the fact that it is not a hoax and that you cannot make certain things go away by calling it a hoax or by pretending that it will go away or with a good hoax.
CovidIQ.org was highlighted by News4Jax (WJXT4) in an interview with one of its founders, Mohammad Reza, MD, Infectious Disease Physician, Medical Director at CAN Community Health
CovidIQ was formed by a concerned group of volunteers from medical, epidemiological, behavioral science, engineering and IT backgrounds. We are hoping to get ahead of the coronavirus pandemic by providing real time data about COVID-19 outbreaks. Start by texting “TOGETHER” to 203-204-9964 to take a short SMS survey.
Don’t forget to share and help the community protect itself from the COVID-19 epidemic.
Facilitated by TrepHub, a group of doctors and information technology specialists from all over the country has combined to create a non-profit that will give users and local, state and federal government agencies more information about the novel coronavirus. It’s called CovidIQ.org
“Trying to help our community, our country to get ahead of this virus by several days, weeks if we can, to figure out where the next hotspot is,” said Mohammed Reza, a Jacksonville-based infectious disease doctor.
Reza, along with other professionals across the U.S. from healthcare and IT, founded the non-profit site where people can report their COVID-19 symptoms. Reza encourages those who don’t have symptoms to participate too.
Just text “TOGETHER” to 203-204-9964 and follow the directions.
