    Episode 19, Segment 3 of 3 – Dr. Vivienne Ming – Inventing Superpowers
    Trident Room Host Mike Wish sits down and has a conversation with philanthropic mad scientist Dr. Vivienne Ming.
    This episode was recorded on August 24, 2021.

    Dr. Vivienne Ming explores maximizing human capacity as a theoretical neuroscientist, delusional inventor, and demented author. Over her career she's founded 6 startups, been chief scientist at 2 others, and launched the “mad science incubator", Soco's Labs, where she explores seemingly intractable problems—from a lone child’s disability to global economic inclusion—for free. Vivienne's other companies apply machine learning to lessen the corrosive health effects of chronic stress in communities, fight bias in hiring and promotion, develop Neurotechnologies to treat dementia and TBI, and promote learning at home and in school. As a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley's Redwood Center for Theoretical Neuroscience, she pursued her research in researching neuroprosthetics. In her free time, Vivienne designs AI systems to treat her son’s diabetes, predict manic episodes in bipolar sufferers, and reunite orphan refugees with extended family members. For relaxation, she writes science fiction and spends time with her wife and children. Vivienne was named “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.
