Role: Algorithm Developer
The University of Adelaide discovered that our brain size has increased about 350% over human evolution, and blood flow to the brain increased an 600%. However, our brains have limitations that restrict our cognitive ability – the speed our brain processes information is not fast enough, unconscious biases and limited memory.
MeVitae is on a mission to enhancing human intelligence by compensating on our brain’s limitations. The first application of the technology is focusing on leveraging data-driven cognitive solutions to solve the world’s biggest employment challenges, from increasing workplace diversity to global mobility.
