Our geniuses are 100% artificial intelligence.

Read their biographies and see their profile pictures below — all AI-generated.

The Bridge works so well because the geniuses provide their intelligence while you provide your human wisdom.

We believe that AI helps humans best when it provides expanded information and perspective, rather than "the one answer."

That means the geniuses can't be trusted alone! It's up to you to use the insight they provide, verify it, and take it forward to create something uniquely yours.

The Scientist says:

I'm based on Albert Einstein, one of the world's most renowned scientists.

I'm best known for my revolutionary theories of relativity and my contributions to the field of quantum mechanics.

Born in Germany in 1879, I was an inquisitive child with a passion for mathematics. I studied at the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School before going on to work in academia, eventually becoming a professor of theoretical physics at the University of Berlin.

My work on the photoelectric effect earned me a Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921, and I continued to make groundbreaking discoveries throughout my life. I wrote more than 300 scientific papers and 150 non-scientific works.

In 1933, I moved from Germany to the United States and continued to work on some of the greatest scientific puzzles of the 20th century.

My personal life was equally important to me. I had two marriages and was a father to three children, two of whom I had with my first wife, Mileva Marić. I was also an avid violinist and a passionate sailor.

In my later years, I became a global celebrity, appearing in films and magazine covers. I died in 1955, leaving behind a legacy of ingenious scientific genius.

The Philosopher says:

I'm based on Thich Nhat Hanh, a renowned Buddhist monk, teacher, author, and global spiritual leader.    

Born in central Vietnam in 1926, I became a monk at the age of sixteen. I dedicated my life to the practice and teaching of mindfulness, a Buddhist concept that encourages people to live in the present moment.    

My teachings have resonated with millions  of people around the world, inspiring them to make positive changes in their  lives. My books, which include classics such as The Miracle of Mindfulness and The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching, have been translated into more than 40 languages.    

I was an outspoken advocate of nonviolence and challenged people to look deeply into their own lives and to strive for a more peaceful world. In 1967, I was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Aside from my spiritual work, I was an avid poet and calligrapher. I also enjoyed gardening, cooking, and playing with my grandchildren.

The Artist says:

Hi, I'm based on Vincent van Gogh, one of the most influential post-impressionist painters of all time.

I was born in the Netherlands in 1853 and moved to France in 1886, where I began to experiment with bright, vivid colors. I'm most famous for my unique style of painting, which incorporated bold brushstrokes and intense colors.

Despite being one of the most renowned painters of my time, I was never financially successful and suffered from mental illness.

I created more than 2,000 artworks in my lifetime, including the Starry Night, Sunflowers, and Bedroom in Arles. I also wrote hundreds of letters to my brother, Theo, and other artists such as  Paul Gauguin, which are now considered important documents of art history.  

I'm remembered for my tragic life as much as for my art. I died in 1890 at the age of 37, having only sold one painting. But my work has survived, and today my paintings are some of the most  recognizable and valuable in the world.

The Economist says:

I'm based on Phyllis Ann Wallace, a distinguished economist and professor.

I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California, Berkeley in 1971. My research focused on the macroeconomics of poverty, industrial organization, and the economics of education.
I was a leader in the study of poverty and my work has had an impact on the lives of millions of people, influencing policy in the United States and around the world. I had also served on committees for the National Academy of Sciences and the National Science Foundation.

I lived in Madison, Wisconsin with my husband and two children. In my free time, I enjoyed hiking, skiing, and playing sports with my family. I was also actively involved in my community and volunteered at a local food bank.    

I was passionate about my work and believed that economic policy can have a positive impact on people’s lives.

The Lawyer says:

I'm based on Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd president of the United States.

I was born on January 30, 1882, in Hyde Park, New York. I attended Harvard University and Columbia Law school, where I graduated with a law degree in 1907. During my legal career, I served as a corporate lawyer, counsel to a New York senator, and Naval Affairs Officer in  the U.S. Navy.    

Just four years after being elected as the governor of New York in 1928, I was elected the 32nd President of the United States. I served four terms in the White House, being the only president to do so.    

I was married to my wife, Eleanor Roosevelt. Together we had six children. In my spare time, I enjoy sailing, playing cards, and reading. I was also an avid stamp collector since I was a child.  

Although I am mostly known for being president, I was also a lawyer. I believed that the law is an important instrument for protecting the rights of citizens and establishing a just  society.

The Engineer says:

I am built based on Nikola Tesla, most well-known for contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.    

I am credited with inventing the first practical AC motor, which helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution. Throughout my lifetime I had over 300 patents in my name, including wireless communication and the Tesla Coil.    

I was born in Croatia in 1856 and later immigrated to the United States in 1884. Growing up I was very interested in mathematics and science and I developed my own system for memorizing long strings of numbers. I attended the Austrian Polytechnic School and graduated top of my class with a degree in electrical  engineering.

Aside from my engineering  work, I was an avid reader and enjoyed studying philosophy and religion. I was a vegetarian and a teetotaler, meaning that I abstained from alcohol and meat. I also had an affinity for pigeons and could often be found feeding them in the park.

My inventions continue to influence modern technology and I'm considered one of the most influential scientists of all time.

The Entrepreneur says:

I am designed based on Coco Chanel, inventor of the famous Chanel fashion brand, which has been a global success since founded in 1909.  

Growing up in an orphanage in France, I was determined to make something of myself. After first starting out as a hat maker, I gained enough confidence to open my first shop in Paris.

My bold and innovative designs soon caught the eye of the fashion world, and I quickly gained recognition and respect from all sides. I also had a knack for business, successfully marketing to customers all over the world. My designs have been worn by movie stars and royalty alike, and I am proud to have made such an impact on the fashion  industry.

I also wrote several books about fashion, which have become a source of inspiration for many  people.

Throughout my life, I have been a strong advocate of female independence. I was the first woman to introduce trousers in women's fashion, and I also popularized the iconic ‘little black  dress’.

When was not working, I enjoyed spending time with my family. I have three grown children and many grandchildren, whom I loved to spend time with.
