PEOPLE

WE: this is the #humanAIZE FAMILY

 

"There is power in unity and there is power in numbers" - said Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

 

We are an initiative uniting people who support our mission to enable 20 million people in Europe with AI by 2023, of  which 10 million are women. To realize this vision, we:

 

  1. Connect AI people into our and other relevant networks aiming to scale our joint activities 

  2. Use an extensive set of tools for educational, scientific, commercial and charitable purposes supporting our mission

 

We are makers and shapers, doers and creators who are bringing AI forward... people who want to understand, learn, shape and use these technologies for the greater societal good. 

Browse below to see the brilliant minds behind the beautiful faces: 

  • The managing team and experienced advisory board

  • The Ambassadors - profiled individuals who are passionately representing our vision and brand in their communities

  • The AI Experts - executives, advisors, professors, business people, developers, trainers, artists, public sector people, media people, inspiring role-models who are shaping and innovating the AI space

  • And our two office dogs - who are very curious to meet Aibo and WowWeeChippies in person
