Dr Vivienne Ming
Theoretical neuroscientist, entrepreneur, author and Mad Scientist Dr Vivienne Ming is all about ‘mashing up’ artificial intelligence, human behaviour, neuroscience and economics to augment humans and “build better people”.
Named one of '10 Women to Watch in Tech' by Inc. Magazine, Vivienne co-founded Socos Labs, her fifth company, an independent think tank exploring the future of human potential. Socos Labs combines machine learning, cognitive neuroscience, and economics to maximize life outcomes in education and the workplace; uniting creative experts to expand their impact on global policy issues, both inside companies and throughout our communities.
Previously, Vivienne was a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley's Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience, pursuing her research in cognitive neuroprosthetics. In her free time, Vivienne has invented AI systems to help treat her diabetic son, predict manic episodes in bipolar sufferers weeks in advance, and reunited orphan refugees with extended family members.
Vivienne sits on boards of numerous companies and non-profits including StartOut, The Palm Center, Cornerstone Capital, Platypus Institute, Shiftgig, Zoic Capital, and SmartStones. She also speaks frequently on her AI-driven research into inclusion and gender in business.
