The Knowledge Society (TKS) is a 10-month accelerator program for curious and ambitious teens. We hear from the co-founder and students of TKS on how they’re solving the world’s most important problems.
The TKS Ethos
“We need to rethink and reinvent how we extract human potential from people so we can solve really important problems and create a better world.
At TKS, we believe that the best way to predict the future is to create it. That’s why we focus on emerging technologies and sciences. Things like nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, genetic engineering. These are the tools we can use to solve important problems and create that future.” Navid, Nathoo, Co-Founder
I’m currently working with IBM on a project to automate coding using artificial intelligence. I’ve built brain-controlled remote controlled cars, mind-controlled prosthetics, brain-controlled virtual reality games, with sponsorship from Microsoft. Ananya Chada, Student Innovator, 16
Currently, I’m working on advancing the field of gene editing with Harvard medical school, with the aim of being able to allow us to solve key diseases that affect the human population to this day that we can’t solve yet. Michael Trinh, Student Innovator, 17
I’m currently working on trying to accelerate rational drug discovery using machine learning, Joey Mach, Student Innovator, 16.
An environment for success
When you put people in environments that inspire them and challenge them to level-up to their true potential, that’s what gets me excited. That’s why we started TKS.
