AviAI Inc. will be joining the Fall 2021 cohort of Berkeley SkyDeck Pad-13 – an aerospace accelerator run by UC Berkeley. We look forward to connecting with other excellent startups and networking with colleagues in the aerospace industry.
I was hired as the Interim CEO of a small tech startup that is developing a cloud-based SaaS platform employing a predictive algorithm (using a machine learning approach) for preventing baggage mishandling during airline transit. United Airlines has funded our project, which aims to use accessible and bias-free technology to improve the human experience of travel. As the CEO, my mission is to promote an organizational culture of ethical entrepreneurship. I collaborate closely with a diverse team of PhDs with backgrounds in data science and engineering. My plan is to see this company, AviAI Inc., through the 2021-2022 accelerator cycle before returning to academia in Fall 2022.
