/I. Overview/ I've been working on the intersection of tech and society since 2005 year - when I've become a tech explorer and launched a hardware think tank. Over my journey, I worked on tech startups and labs, helped to facilitate tech ecosystems through North America to APAC, MENA, Africa, screened over a few thousand teams, contributed to policies, frameworks, ethics, public and multilateral initiatives. In 2020/21 I've spent over 60 world appearances to bring awareness to the neurodiversity/ability exclusion crisis, ethics and the role of social AI, robotics and tech. /II. Work/ My mission is to reshape the future of technology, algorithms, research and policy through the divergent lens, with a focus on emerging solutions in the fields of accessibility, neurodiversity, learning, wellbeing. ● serve as an explorer, co-designer and board member for the portfolio of emerging technologies and solutions that reshape the future of this field from social AI to (neuro)diverse experiences (our priorities are in upcoming "halo vision"); ● serve as an independent evaluator to screen and support a variety of research and innovation, tech transfer and cascade funding programs (ex. - the EU Commission, governmental programs, funds - NDA); ● work on updates to tech policies, ethics and frameworks (ex. - "tech evaluation, algorithmic diversity and human rights", "exploration through divergent lens", "human-centered ai & ethics") ● chair and co-participate accessibility working groups, panels and initiatives working to better adopt and improve it (ex. - "tech london group"); ● co-organize initiatives aimed to democratize and spread our movement further, involving more underrepresented voices, researchers and technologists through the bottom-up co-creation (ex. - MIT, Women In AI).
