Joel Hellermark, Deep Learning and Personalized Education
Joel is coming to EdTech Sweden to talk about his experiences of applying deep learning to personalize education, unleashing each student’s full potential. Joel is founder of Sana Labs, an artifical intelligence company.
Sana is an artificial intelligence company that applies recent breakthroughs in deep learning to personalize education. The company was founded in Stockholm in 2016 and is backed by a renowned set of investors and advisors. The interdisciplinary team consists of engineers and scientists with backgrounds ranging from Imperial College and the Royal Institute of Technology.
Joel taught himself to code in C at age 13 and founded his first company, a video recommendation technology, at 16. While a senior in high school, Joel developed the initial Sana algorithm. Although it was only the seed of what Sana would become, the technology received widespread attention from world-class investors, advisors and artificial intelligence researchers. Subsequently, at age 20, Joel raised $1M to bring Sana to the world.
