About Michael

Michael Running Wolf was raised in a rural prairie village in Montana with intermittent water and electricity; naturally he now has a Masters of Science in Computer Science and is a published poet. His lifelong passion is endangered language revitalization with immersive Augmented and Virtual Reality experiences using automatic speech recognition. He was raised with a grandmother who only spoke his tribal language, Cheyenne, which like many indigenous languages is near extinction. By leveraging his advanced degree and technical skills, Michael hopes to strengthen the ecology of thought represented by minority languages through immersive technology.
