Mascot & Chief Audacity Officer

Q-man is more than just our mascot. It is a vision to build the world’s first super intelligence system for electric transportation, both on land and in air. This audacious plan is so disruptive that if the large incumbents find out about it, they will steal it from us. 😉 

The EV battery industry is changing rapidly. The global competition for supply chain dominance among battery and auto OEMs is intensifying. Car companies want to make their own batteries, and battery companies want to become the new oil giants. New technologies including AI, blockchain, and digital coin are being applied to raw material sourcing, manufacturing quality control, vehicle battery health monitoring, etc. Tomorrow’s EV battery companies will be very different from today’s EV battery companies. We have an opportunity to build something much greater, the world’s first super intelligence system for electric transportation.


In the movie Minority Report, there was a scene:

John Anderton: Why’d you catch that?
Danny Witwer: Because it was going to fall…
John Anderton: You see the dilemma don’t you. If you don’t kill me, precogs were wrong and precrime is over.


Human species are experiencing an explosive growth in EV battery capacity from 10s of GWhs to 100s of GWhs to now even 1000s of GWhs, so explosive that if the Earth were a semiconductor chip, this explosive growth is like the growth of memory in the last few decades best summarized by Moore’s Law. Battery capacity explosion leads to data explosion, which leads to intelligence explosion. The old limits set by our human understanding are being shattered and replaced by new limits set by laws of physics. We are approaching a grander and more inspiring universe. We can synthesize everything, from mines, to battery materials, to batteries, to vehicles (EVs and eVTOLs), to user data & software, to recycling, from mine to man, all into a Minority Report-style super intelligence system that can see everything and redesign and improve its software and hardware. We have the opportunity to convert non-life into mind.


Q-man is young, audacious, and inspired to push limits. A fascinating journey awaits.
