Mykhailo Marynenko will use the $100,000 O'Shaughnessy Fellowship grant to fund various projects that combine technology, art, and human interaction.
GREENWICH, Conn., April 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- O'Shaughnessy Ventures LLC ("OSV"), an investment firm that empowers creators, has announced that it has awarded an O'Shaughnessy Fellowship to Mykhailo Marynenko. Marynenko is a software and hardware engineer from Ukraine. As well as being a keen researcher of security issues, he is passionate about building modern, collaborative, performant, scalable applications.
Marynenko will use his fellowship grant to work on projects that combine technology, art, and human interaction. One project involves using AI and a custom-modified EEG headset to generate images from an artist's brainwaves, thus developing new ways for artists to draw/visualize using visual cortex data.
OSV's founder and CEO, Jim O'Shaughnessy, commented as follows:
"Marynenko has already achieved a remarkable amount at a young age, including building a self-driving electric skateboard, creating an automated stock trading engine, and creating facial recognition technology currently used in Stockholm coffee shops. We are excited to see what unique technologies he builds during his O'Shaughnessy Fellowship."
Marynenko said, "I am thrilled to be part of the O'Shaughnessy Fellowship, where I can further my mission to innovate at the intersection of technology and creative endeavors."
Further information about Marynenko is available via his website.
