About

Alexa. Siri. Google. Cortana. Smart-Homes. And we’ve not even touched self-driving cars. 

If you’re alive in the 21st century, you’re aware that artificial intelligence is invading our lives at a rapid pace. And we here at Synthetic Smarts think that’s a good thing. That said, the increased speed of technological advances does pose unique challenges in our lives, work, and the world we live in. 

Forbes Magazine said that five tech advancements will influence the near and distant future of humanity. 

  • Blockchain
  • The Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Human and Artificial Neural Networks
  • Quantum Batteries 
  • Generative Adversarial Networks

These things and the issues they impact—which include healthcare, education, business, and more—can’t be ignored. They must be faced and understood, and the more people who understand advancements in technology, the better. 

That’s where Synthetic Smarts comes in. Artificial intelligence is invading our lives at a rate so fast that it’s difficult to keep up. Before you know it, self-driving cars will be as commonplace as electric cars have become. 

The products and advancements we currently enjoy will continue to become better and gain even greater popularity. Industries will continue to flourish and self-learning and self-repairing computers become more and more common. 

Here at Synthetic Smarts, we explore all that A.I. has to offer, whether it’s high-tech gadgets or cool cars, or farm equipment or factory robots. We even enjoy looking into the past (not time travel...we wish!). We’ll check out old sci-fi movies, books, and magazines to see exactly what they got right, and what they got incredibly wrong. 

We here at Synthetic Smarts love hearing from our readers. Drop us a comment on any of our articles or get in touch with a member of our staff. We are here to serve you, whether it’s with new content you’d like to see or a product you’d like for us to review.

Chief Editor

I’m an early adapter of computers and technology. I’ve closely followed tech since then, and enjoy having the latest and greatest technology available. 


In college, I got my degree in computer engineering, and after college, I went to work writing manuals for various tech companies. Doing this helped me to hone my technical writing skills and that experience directly led me to work here at Synthetic Smarts. I hope our content is helpful and that you make us your go-to source for staying on top of emergent technology.

 My primary role at Synthetic Smarts is to be the last tier of accuracy testing on all of our content. We work with an excellent team of specialists who write the top content in the industry. Our multiple tiers of quality control ensure that all of the information we give our readers is 100% current and accurate. Technology changes rapidly, and we change along with it. 


I graduated from college with a double major in International Business and English Literature. I worked in the tech industry for years before becoming a full-time writer and editor.

Emergent Tech Expert

It’s my job to stay on top of all emerging technological advances, as well as closely follow the news in the world of emerging technology. 


The interesting thing about emergent technology is that while it seems like something totally new, most of the new interesting emergent tech is iterative, meaning that it improves on a system that came before. The new technology offers completely new approaches to using old systems to solve old and new problems. 


I live and breath technology (and even have a degree in A.I.), so it’s my pleasure to serve our readers in helping them to stay on top of what’s going on in their worlds.
