Neurotechnology: Connecting our brains to overcome global challenges
Empodera.org talks to Ananya Chadha, a 19-year-old Canadian Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence developer at IBM and Neurotechnology researcher at Neuralink. A resident of Toronto, she is currently pursuing her undergraduate degree in Neurotechnology and Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. She worked in gene editing research at the Cohn Laboratory in Toronto. There he built a platform, called G-nome, where people can upload their own genetic data to help researchers cure different diseases.
"My long-term goal is to hopefully change the lives of a billion people for the better. If I think about how to do that, the answer always goes through technology"
He then worked at Babel Ventures, a biotech venture fund, and got excited about Artificial Intelligence (AI). So she ended up working in AI at IBM and in neurotechnology with Microsoft and Neuralink. Ananya has always focused on any area with potential for impact to do good and anything she finds fun. Read the full interview at Empodera.org or watch the video interview.
