Chao (Cico) Zhang is doing his PhD. (Doctor of Philosophy) research1 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. His research interests include, but are not limited to, philosophy of mind2, human-centred artificial intelligence and its application, spirituality and its impact on science. He loves mindfulness meditation and philosophy, cherishes intelligence humbleness and intellectual independence, cares about human values and well-being, and disapproves of egoism and materialism. His main philosophical viewpoint is to embrace and appreciate the diversity of minds. He has described himself as a mindful, open-minded, cosmopolitan, self-motivated, compassionate fully, reflective, philosophical and communicative person. His long-term goal is to be a big thinker and creative problem-solver for the world, rather than a narrowly focused boffin to itself.
