In this week’s Future Positive podcats, XPRIZE’s own Neama Dadkhahnikoo sits down with A.I. entrepreneur Anita Schjøll Brede to ask her all about her experience as a thought leader and woman in A.I., her tenacity to identify problems and her incredible ability to solve them. She also shares with us which women have inspired her along the way.
Anita is the CEO and Co-Founder of Iris.ai; an AI science assistant, able to read and connect scientific knowledge, that will grow up to be the world’s first AI Researcher within a decade. Iris.ai are one of 10 semifinals of the the $5M IBM Watson AI XPRIZE.
Anita was announced by Forbes to be one of the World’s Top 50 Women in Tech in 2018. She thoroughly enjoys her time on stage, has done two TEDx talks and 500 startups, Singularity University Global Grand Challenges Awards and TechCrunch Disrupt Startup Battlefield alumni.
Anita has never had what she refers to as “a real job” and Iris.ai is her fourth own startup. The past 10 years of her career have spanned over 9 industries including developing an e-learning tool in Silicon Valley, performing theatre for babies, reducing energy consumption in the process industry through heat exchanger network optimization, organizing entrepreneurial conferences and trying to disrupt the recruitment industry.
