Jorge Moll has wanted to and has pursued education, healthcare and research opportunities in his native country of Brazil. His days are largely spent having meetings with various groups of people covering many topics. These groups of people include his research associates, his students, fellow scientists and entrepreneurs. These people can come from many different organizations. This is important to him so he can achieve a wide collaboration of ideas.
Jorge Moll is interested in ways that can make the human brain and machines work together to achieve an objective. He likes to study artificial intelligence and cognitive systems. Gene therapy and regenerative medicine are also fields of interest for him. He is somewhat frustrated by today’s academia and industry as far as scientific innovation goes. He believes that more time and effort should go towards long term, high risk ideas and not stay in a safe zone. One should not keep repeating things and current models need to be questioned.
Jorge Moll believes that positive change can occur to out realities by simply doing interesting things. He partially attributes the success of his business by doing this. One thing that he would like to try would be to start a company that simplifies hospital admittance. That is one to keep in mind.
