Patrick Smith


I am a database and statistical algorithm programmer working in the field of birth defects research at The University of California, San Francisco. I also am a landscape photographer and have written two related books, which are on Amazon. My photos have been viewed over 150 billion times. See my blog URL for my photography.

I write science fiction and am fascinated with the rapid advances in genetic engineering, artificial intelligence and other scientific disciplines. In 30-50 years or so, computers and the software running them will match our intelligence, then surpass it. What then?

I wrote a story about the end to the human species, possibly voluntarily!
