That artificial intelligence will transform our world is inevitable. To Eric Daimler—a leading expert in the field of robotics & AI—it’s also an incredible opportunity for augmentation in all that we do. Lost in the Hollywood narrative that robots will defeat or dehumanize us is their truth: robotics &AI will unlock an ability for individuals and companies to unleash their potential in ways not yet fully imaginable. While Daimler sees no Terminator apocalypse, he does see urgency in understanding AI’s possibilities: adapt or risk obsolescence of skill or industry.

When President Obama saw the need for a dynamic conversation about robotics & AI to guide smart adoption and policy, he turned to Daimler. Today, the AI field is concentrated in technical hands. What sets Daimler apart is his rare and high-level success all around robotics & AI through entrepreneurship, policy, early-stage venture investment, and academic research & teaching. This combination of knowledge and experience makes Daimler uniquely positioned to discuss the AI revolution both broadly and deeply, across industries, and in language relevant to a range of audiences—from farmers to Fortune 500 executives. He knows AI from every angle and can speak to specific fears and desires for a pragmatic approach to embracing AI.

Daimler’s message aims to bridge corporations and people into the imminent new age so that they may thrive and prosper. Those who hear him speak leave enthralled, empowered, and comforted knowing that they, too, have a role to play in a future that was once the stuff of science fiction.

Dr. Eric Daimler is a leading authority in robotics and artificial intelligence with over 20 years of experience as an entrepreneur, investor, technologist, and policymaker. Eric served under the Obama Administration as a Presidential Innovation Fellow for AI and Robotics in the Executive Office of President, as the sole authority driving the agenda for U.S. leadership in research, commercialization, and public adoption of AI & Robotics.

Eric has incubated, built and led several technology companies recognized as pioneers in their fields ranging from software systems to statistical arbitrage. Currently, he serves on the boards of WelWaze and Petuum, the largest AI investment by Softbank’s Vision Fund. His newest venture, Conexus, is a groundbreaking solution for what is perhaps today’s biggest information technology problem — data deluge.

Eric’s extensive career spanning business, academics and policy give him a rare perspective on the next generation of AI. Eric sees clearly how information technology can dramatically improve our world. However, it demands our engagement. Neither a utopia nor dystopia is inevitable. What matters is how we shape and react to, its development.

As a successful entrepreneur, Eric is looking towards the next generation of AI as a system that creates a multi-tiered platform for fueling the development and adoption of emerging technology for industries that have traditionally been slow to adapt. As founder and CEO of Conexus, Eric is leading the development CQL, a patent-pending platform founded upon category theory — a revolution in mathematics — to help companies manage the overwhelming and rapidly growing challenge of data integration and migration.

A frequent speaker, lecturer, and commentator, Eric works to empower communities and citizens to leverage robotics and AI to build a more sustainable, secure, and prosperous future. His academic research has been at the intersection of AI, Computational Linguistics, and Network Science (Graph Theory). His work has expanding to include economics and public policy. He served as Assistant Professor and Assistant Dean at Carnegie Mellon’s School of Computer Science where he founded the university’s Entrepreneurial Management program and helped to launch Carnegie Mellon’s Silicon Valley Campus. He has studied at the University of Washington-Seattle, Stanford University, and Carnegie Mellon University, where he earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science.
