Frequently featured for her research and inventions in The Financial Times, The Atlantic and the New York Times, Dr. Vivienne Ming is a theoretical neuroscientist, serial entrepreneur, and author of two books and many research papers. Vivienne has had a truly fascinating life journey as you'll discover. She co-founded Socos Labs, her fifth company, an independent think tank exploring the future of human potential. 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. In this far-reaching chat, we discuss Vivienne's work on AI, belief-based utility, understanding the messiness of life and of our systems, dealing with homelessness and diabetes, hacking Google Glasses and a whole lot more.
