As the co-founder and CEO of XLabs, Radhika Dirks runs the one and only “moonshot factory” for AI. She truly believes in the technology’s power to elevate our human capabilities, and works hard to make that vision a reality. For her radical and tireless efforts, she has been named one of the Top 30 inspirational women advancing AI this year by ReWork.
Since graduating with her PhD in Quantum Computing, Radhika Dirks has been involved in many AI projects. First, as CEO of Seldn.ai, an AI start-up that predicts global socio-economic disruptions, and then as an advisor of Katapult accelerator, alderan, and dashboard earth. Now, she runs what she calls “a new kind of Bell Labs,” ushering in The Intelligent Age with inventive applications of AI, quantum computing, and neurotech. In her passionate talks, Dirks explains both moonshot thinking—going beyond the realm of possibility—and the fundamentals of artificial intelligence.
“In 2020, from a few corners of the world, we will start to see AI built to tackle hard, meaningful problems,” Dirks explains in Forbes. “AI built to help us humans do what we cannot, as opposed to simply attempting to mimic our abilities. ‘Amplified Intelligence’ is what we call this next-era AI.”
