Check out: Mission: to live in a world where you can learn university-level mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and engineering from perfect free open source books that anyone can write to get famous. Further information: Section ""
My life's goal is to bring hardcore university-level STEM open educational content to all ages. Sponsor me at starting from 1$/month so I can work full time on it. Further information: Section "Sponsor Ciro Santilli's work on". 100k USD = I quit me job and work on it one year full time. Achieving what I call "free gifted education" is my Nirvana.
Besides that, I'm also a freedom of speech slacktivist and recreational cyclist. Tax the rich. Opinions are my own, but they could be yours too.
I offer:
My approach is to learn the material with the student(s), and publish any missing tutorials as freely licensed tutorials online. I have a proven track of explaining complex concepts in an interesting and useful way. I work for the learner. Teaching statement at: Section "How to teach". Pricing to be discussed. Contact details at: Section "How to contact Ciro Santilli".

Figure 1. Ciro Santilli's amazing Stack Overflow profile. Ciro contributes almost exclusively by answering question he Googles into out of his own need, and never by refreshing the newest question of big tags for low hanging fruit!

Video 4. Top Down 2D Continuous Game with Urho3D C++ SDL and Box2D for Reinforcement learning by Ciro Santilli (2018) Source. More information: Section "Ciro's 2D reinforcement learning games". This is Ciro's underwhelming stab at the fundamental question: Can AGI be trained in simulations?. This project could be taken much further.

Code 1. ASCII art of Force of Will Magic: The Gathering card inscribed in the Bitcoin blockchain.
Artist unknown, uploaded December 2014. Part of Section "Cool data embedded in the Bitcoin blockchain" where Ciro Santilli maintains a curated list of such interesting inscriptions.
This was a small project done by Ciro for artistic purposes that received some attention due to the incredible hype surrounding cryptocurrencies at the time. Ciro Santilli's views on cryptocurrencies are summarized at: Section "Are cryptocurrencies useful?".
Figure 3. A Star Wars-themed website used as one of the CIA 2010 covert communication websites. Ciro Santilli had some naughty OSINT fun finding some of the websites of the defunct network after he heard about the 2022 Reuters report on the matter, which gave away only 7 of the websites out of a claimed 885 total found.
A quick 2D continuous AI game prototype for reinforcement learning written in Matter.js, you can view it on a separate page at This is a for-fun-only prototype for Ciro's 2D reinforcement learning games, C++ or maybe Python (for the deep learning ecosystem) seems inevitable for a serious version of such a project. But it is cute how much you can do with a few lines of Matter.js!
