Who is Dr Eric Amidi?
if we hope to understand it… ”
If you wanted to classify and identify Dr Eric Amidi by what he has done, he would be a scientist and a Quantum Physicist by definition but if you ask him, he will tell you “I don’t identify myself by what I do”. He would tell you that he’s on a journey like anyone else. But if you want to know him by the standards and conventions of the modern society, here’s who he “is”…!
Dr Eric Amidi (also known as Erfan) is a Quantum Physicist. Along with a group of great physicists at Fermi National Laboratory (Fermilab) in Batavia Illinois, he discovered a long sought elementary particle called the Top Quark.
Dr Amidi used Artificial Neural Networks to search for the Top Quark. Artificial Neural Networks are sophisticated software programs that can learn. These networks simulate the inner workings of a learning brain. More than a physicist, Dr Amidi is a scientist who refuses to limit himself to one body of knowledge or decipline, and tends to cross multiple deciplines. He’d tell you …”The universe does not divide itself into various departments such as physics, biology, psychology, etc and neither should we, if we hope to understand it”.
