OUR STORY

This project idea was conceived on my 24-hour sabbatical (no cell phone, no laptop) on Monday, March 6, 2023. As I looked out from my basement into my backyard, I observed a small squirrel at the very top of a tall tree and I wondered what gave such a small animal the ability to ascend to such great heights and descend face down.
I discovered that a squirrel’s tail enables its balance and control, to ascend and descend to/from great heights.
I wondered what provides humans with balance and controls and found out it was the cerebellum located at the back of our heads, known as the “little brain” and I immediately had an epiphany to adopt this word to describe this project.
While the increasing AI adoption across any industry sector provides a massive opportunity for humanity and our current civilization, there is a need for balance and control of AI, driven by initiatives like Project Cerebellum.
