Many of you are very concerned about why my Twitter account is no longer active. I have voluntarily decided to de-activate my account in the interest of my safety and to reduce anxiety for my loved ones. I want to focus on my research and my team where my attention and energy are badly needed.
I want to emphasize that this decision is solely mine. My employers NVIDIA and Caltech are fully supportive of me and my mission. They support employees expressing diverse personal views.
I am proud of the work we have done to promote diversity and inclusion. I encourage you to continue doing that. We are all bright creative minds with an endless potential to innovate. We will find new and safer ways to stay connected and build a better future.
