Mr. Chetan Dube
President & CEO, IPsoft
Chetan Dube is the President and CEO of IPsoft. Before forming IPsoft in 1998, as a faculty at New York University, Dube was fascinated by the Turing enigma, which asks the question if machines can think. As opposed to narrow AI, where non-sentient programs are focused on narrow tasks, Dube’s research has focused on deep AI. He has been awarded several US patents for developing cognitive models that abstract semantic, episodic, process, analytic and affective parts of neocortical output. E&Y recognized him as Entrepreneur of the Year for leading research in AI that emulates human thinking and approaches the Turing horizon. Dube is convinced that within the next 9 years, it will become hard to distinguish androids from man. He envisages a world where man and machine work closely together to build a radically more efficient planet.
