Value

We leave enough data online to create near identical digital personas for virtually any person. Right now, most of that of data is being wasted by companies figuring out which ads to show us next. Now imagine we used that data to power intelligent avatars that not only look and sound like us, but could act like us and perform tasks for us. The more we use our Personal AI, the more intelligent and more capable they become. That is what AI on the blockchain enables, and that is the type of AI that’s going to transform our lives. - Nikhil R Jain

About Nikhil

Nikhil R. Jain is the co-founder and CEO of ObEN, an artificial intelligence company developing Personal AI (PAI) on the blockchain. Inspired by a desire to leave a digital copy of himself behind to read bedtime stories to his children while he traveled on business, Nikhil aims to transform how people interact in the digital space. ObEN’s technology uses cutting-edge Natural Language Processing (NLP), Computer Vision (CV), and Machine Learning technology to create AI powered 3D avatars that look, talk, sing and think like their unique human counterparts. ObEN is the first adopter of the Project PAI Blockchain Protocol, a fully decentralized, blockchain-based network designed to give everyone the ability to create, operate, and manage a PAI. Individuals and organizations can develop PAI oriented experiences on the open-source Project PAI blockchain, helping to create an independent, decentralized, and trackable AI economy.

Nikhil is a firm believer in the ability for artificial intelligence and decentralized blockchains to improve nearly every facet of the human experience. When he’s not working with team ObEN or at home with his family, he spends his time traveling the world speaking at numerous conferences and events, galvanizing adoption of AI on the blockchain.

Prior to ObEN, Nikhil co-founded technology startups OnGreen and Up and Running Software. Nikhil has an MBA from the University of Southern California and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Pondicherry University.
