An encounter with Vivienne Ming

Ming, recognized by the BBC as one of the 100 most influential women in the world, has been a trainer linked to Singularity University and the Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at the University of Berkeley, California, where she conducted her research in cognitive neuroprosthetics, also founding five companies along the way.


The latest, Socos Labs focuses its work on using technology to maximize human potential and is made up of independent experts who use machine learning, neuroscience and economics to explore the future of the human mind and its potential. His research covers the disciplines of education, mental health, inclusion and the future of work.

More than AI, Vivienne Ming prefers to talk about people, making a call to focus the development of artificial intelligence under the human gaze and accepting that she will not magically solve problems that humans have not been able to solve or that are beyond her comprehension.

Acudir to a prestigious university is worth it, but Ming's analysis suggests that people probably go to college for the wrong reason. "They study there because they think it's a guarantee of getting a well-paid job and they're not wrong about it, but that doesn't make them better at what they do"
