Frank Kuehnel joins us and recalls his move from Germany to the US. His only knowledge of the US was from movies and television- In his words- Kojak for the east coast, John Wayne for everything in between and Streets of San Francisco for the west. He excelled in science and mathematics early on in his life which made his path very clear to him. But his take was that there was a deeper mystery to the universe and the the language with which to discover that deeper mystery was mathematics. And so he landed at NASA just after school and helped land a rover on Mars through computer vision AI. Which eventually led Frank to Google. He discusses the fact society needs understand how to educate youth to be prepared with curiosity and give them tools to learn and be curious forever.
