Alexis first got interested in perceptive psi via the study of human perception & decision making during his research in artificial intelligence. He found out the remote viewing literature and decided to move on that direction. Applications, R&D and what it can provide to fundamental research is what drives him. His views are that remote viewing protocols can be enhanced, via training and the use of software, to get better operational results for companies.
