Founder, Synthea Amatus
Dr Santos is an Electronic Engineer that has spent the past ten years researching in the fields of nanotechnology, biotechnology and materials science.
He holds a PhD in Nanotechnology from the University of Leeds, UK. His last academic work focused on applying artificial intelligence and machine learning to materials science.
His wide range of interests extends beyond the sciences through to fields as broad as philosophy, psychology, human behaviour, arts and computing.
Over recent years, he has developed an algorithm that exploits mechanisms found in standard phenomena such as capillarity and magnetism to produce an architecture to simulate human emotions and the reactions triggered by internal and external phenomena.
This work has led to the creation of the Samantha project, that consists on simulating emotion and decision using the bodies of sex dolls typically found in the sex industry. Synthea Amatus SL is the company founded centered around Samantha.
