Gnostika aka Anita Schjøll Brede

I am the CEO and co-founder of Iris AI, an artificial intelligence aiming to read all of the worlds research and help us connect the dots across research fields - making sure what we already know is actually put into practice.

I work remotely with a Norwegian-Finnish-Spanish-Swedish-Bulgarian founding team. I work from wherever I like, travel a lot to meet with my team mates - and have been for all of my last projects. The past two years I haven't lived in one place for more than 10 weeks at a time. I'm fairly nomadic.

Iris AI is my fourth startup and I've worked in a range of different industries with technology ranging from solar lights to heat exchanger networks and thermal dynamics to a variety of software applications, nano technology, race cars and now AI. I'm always on the business side of things, where I need to understand what we're doing but without needing to implement solutions myself.

I play Roller Derby. It's the most badass all-girl sport in the world. Check it out ;)

What I love about what I do is the passion, the vibe and the intensity of tech startups. I love doing things I don't know I do and I really don't like repetitive work. I love learning new things. I am not a deep domain expert in anything but I know a little about a lot.
