Dr. Vivienne Ming explores maximizing human capacity as a theoretical neuroscientist, inventor, and author. Over her career, she has founded six startups, been chief scientist at two others, and launched the “mad science incubator” Socos Labs, where she explores seemingly intractable problems for free. As the cofounder and chief scientist of Dionysus Health, she applies machine learning to lessen the corrosive health effects of chronic stress in communities. She also develops tools for learning at home and in school and TBI, models of bias in hiring and promotion, and neurotechnologies to treat dementia, an outgrowth of her research at UC Berkeley's Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience. Ming was named one of “10 Women to Watch in Tech” by Inc. Magazine and one of the BBC’s 100 Women in 2017. She is featured frequently for her research and inventions in The Financial Times, The Atlantic, Quartz Magazine and The New York Times.
