Jean-François (Jeff)

Computer engineer, musician and lecturer, Jean-François is responsible for software development at UCM.

Born in Mauricie, Quebec, Canada, Jean-François grew up in an environment very open on all plans... From an early age, he learns music, programs computers and meets with personalities from the spiritual world such as Adéla Tremblay-Sergerie and A.D. Grad. His interest in music led him to the music Conservatory of Trois-Rivières where he learned the French horn and the saxophone. He uses the computer as a musical creation tool from the very first technological advances in the field. He composes soundtracks for several films, some of which have won prizes and distinctions. He continued his studies in computer engineering at Laval University where he is at the heart of the development of several innovative software.

His interest in ancestral cultures like those coming from India and Tibet led him to travel to these countries and actively participate in several humanitarian projects such as the Round-and-Blue peace project and the safeguarding of ancient Tibetan writings in a monastery in India. He also has the opportunity to meet the Dalai Lama and this event led him to create the Centre Paramita of Tibetan Buddhism in Quebec.

It was during a lecture tour by Kaya and Christiane Muller that he discovers symbolic language and emotional intelligence, which allowed him to make the link between intellectual, spiritual and emotional logic.

During a two-year trip to India with his wife Sonia and their two daughters, Jean-François assembled a talented team of engineers to prepare for the implementation of a new technology that will integrate symbolic language with artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics. These very advanced software platforms will be used as much in the medical and therapeutic environment as in the field of education.
