Chao (Cico) Zhang is doing his PhD. (Doctor of Philosophy) research1 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. His diverse 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 (Zen and Neuron), cherishes intelligence humbleness and intellectual independence, cares about human values and well-being, and disapproves of narcissism, 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 messenger to awaken more people and creative problem-solver for the world, rather than a narrowly focused boffin to itself.
