Khai Min Pham | Founder & CEO Thinkingnode Life Sciences | Panelist
Combining Medicine (MD) and Artificial Intelligence (PhD), including working extensively on both Machine Learning and Reasoning AI for 25+ years, Dr. Khai Pham has been a successful innovator entrepreneur in Silicon Valley for 15 years. Moved to San Diego to be closer to its amazing Life Sciences community to apply a next-gen Unified Reasoning AI for drug R&D. He pioneered in the Machine Learning market as the founder & CEO of DataMind, a leading AI company using its proprietary Unified Intelligent Agent Technology. Later renamed RightPoint, it was acquired by E.piphany (Nasdaq:EPNY) for US$637 Million. Today, with ThinkingNodeLife.ai, Dr. Pham is pioneering in the Reasoning AI Biology market by introducing a platform capable of generating any Digital Human Cell Clones using an In Silico Cell Differentiation process. He believes it will have a major impact because today Machine Learning provides amazing results related to statistical pattern recognition capabilities, but to be more accurate domains such as Drug R&D, Precision Medicine, Synthetic Biology…, where sophisticated reasoning using causations and not just correlations alone extracted from Big Data is needed. M.D. and a Ph.D. in AI both from Sorbonne University in Paris. Published several scientific papers, received international grants, taught AI at LISH-CNRS, received an entrepreneur award from BP, was EIR/Mentor at CONNECT, talked as keynote in conferences.
