Vedant Misra

Founder/CEO at an AI startup called Kemvi. I'm interested in artificial intelligence, consciousness, rationality, neuroscience, markets, and Mexican food.


I work at Kemvi. We're building DeepGraph, an engine that extracts information from the web to accelerate business transactions. We develop novel algorithms that learn to read and understand language like a human.

I believe strongly in the use of science and technology to solve the world’s biggest problems. I am enthusiastic about the future of artificial intelligence.

I've worked on black hole physics1, statistical finance2, human-computer interaction3, and machine learning4. My work has been covered by TechCrunch5, Fortune6, Wired7, BoingBoing8, Technology Review9, PhysOrg10, BostInno11, ScienceNews12, and others.

I studied physics, mathematics, and economics at Columbia as a Rabi Scholar. I later worked at NECSI, an independent think tank in Cambridge, MA focused on complex systems research.
