Undoubtedly, our sense of smell is both essential and powerful. A scent may transport you back to your childhood, happy, warm memories and a state of well-being. Obviously the opposite is true as well.

play around with
contemporary tools.

To gain awareness of how AI is being used in simple bytes.


Slow learning is what you make out of it.
