“Why ‘AI: Alan Intelligence’? Are you an egotist?”
I think if look at my profile image with Elvis, you can probably guess that I don’t take myself too seriously, especially if you look at other images scattered around this site.
In 2022 I was blessed to help my employer with a situation where we needed to ensure our patients received needed care during a strike. My primary specialty, right now, is data and reporting. One time on a call, when I said I was going to enhance a solution, an Executive Director asked me, “Are you going to use AI?” As I went to answer, he continued, “Alan Intelligence?”
Talk about making a guy feel great!
And later, as I thought about it, a long time had passed since I truly felt that good about myself. It also reminded me how, in high school, that sometimes I felt so positive I would sign the initial “A” in “Alan” as a star.
Thus was born, “AI: Alan Intelligence” and the logo for this site.
Now, I’m not going to lie to you. I can’t say I now strut around with my head held up high. I don’t. But, that ED’s kind, uplifting words still bring me joy, so I’ll take a chance this site will cause people to think I’m a narcissist. 🙂
Finally, although I don’t take myself too seriously, and joke around quite a bit (perhaps too much), I to take life seriously. So, please join me as I try to smile and make others smile, while at the same time ponder the weightier things.
P.S. This site is also going to be used for me to simplify my on-line fingerprint. As time goes on, other sites will disappear, perhaps with portions of their material merged into AI: Alan Intelligence.
