A successful entrepreneur with more than 15 years’ experience as a researcher of learning sciences, data mining and artificial intelligence, he leads a team of scientists targeting global impact on increasing work productivity and promoting wellbeing. Working to develop cognitive artificial intelligence and teachable software robots, the company seeks to produce highly versatile bots that can automate various everyday intellect jobs. Before HeadAI, Ketamo founded SkillPixels, a global gamified elementary school for mobile and tablet users, ranked in the top five apps for kids in the App Store in more 70 countries. Some of his specific interests involve the future of libraries, and pulling printed books into the “Internet of Things.” He has worked on using artificial intelligence to index digitized libraries, building automatic key-wording and networks of relationships between books.
