On the Application of Convolutional Neural Netoworks in the Prediction of Psychedelic Molecules


Nik has also contributed to the academic studies of psychedelics. Upon recieving the WSU Hacker Undergraduate Scholarship to do his own mathematical research, Nik pursued a machine learning model to predict novel psychdelic molecules. The results of that research culminated in a poster presentation: On the Application of Convolutional Neural Netoworks in the Prediction of Psychedelic Molecules

On the Anthropology of Magic Mushrooms

Nik's study of psychedelics and the sacred mushroom extends to anthropology as well. This short paper touches not only on the history of mushroom use but also the interestting co-evolutionary relationship mushrooms seem to have with humans: On the Anthropology of Magic Mushrooms
