Are We Developing Artificial Intelligence To Support Humanity? | Somdip Dey | TEDxColchester
Speaking for TEDxColchester about AI and the impact it's having on our lives, Somdip Dey shares a talk that blends his own personal experiences with his work in the field of AI. Somdip is a Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Essex & CEO of Nosh Technologies, an award-winning food tech company offering AI powered food management to reduce food waste in the household. In 2012, he invented a digital QR authentication system that was adopted by institutes around the world to stop the generation of fake degree certificates. While pursuing his MSc at the University of Manchester in 2014, his parents had a car accident that made him the family's sole breadwinner. Sending money to his family to support them left Somdip with an empty bank account and he was left to collect food waste from dumpsters. This led him to co-found Codeepy, a start-up committed to co-developing the world's first crowd food-sharing platform. It won the 3Scale API Award at the Koding’s 2014 Global Hackathon & inspired entrepreneurs to develop similar solutions. He has 10+ years of experience in developing cutting-edge technologies, including contracts with Microsoft & Samsung Electronics. This talk was given as part of a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organised by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx.
