Dr. Vishal Sikka

Dr. Vishal Sikka

Founder and CEO, Vianai Systems, Inc.

Oracle OpenWorld

Dr. Vishal Sikka is the Founder and CEO of Vianai Systems, a startup based in the San Francisco Bay Area that provides advanced technological software and services in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to large companies around the world. Dr. Sikka also serves on the Supervisory Board of the BMW Group and on the Advisory Council for the Stanford Institute for Human-centered AI (HAI).

Dr. Sikka is especially known for his championship of technology as an amplifier of human potential and his passion for applying software in purposeful ways to address some of the biggest global challenges. His experience includes research in artificial intelligence, intelligent systems, programming languages and models, and information management—at Stanford University, at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), and as the founder of several startups.

Dr. Sikka has a distinguished background in the field of Artificial Intelligence. His Ph.D. was in AI from Stanford University. Prof. John McCarthy, known as the father of AI, was the head of his qualifying exam committee. Vishal’s thesis was on integrating multiple “specialist” AI techniques into general-purpose reasoning, a foundational problem in AI that is a glaring weakness of current AI techniques. In addition to his Ph.D. from Stanford, he has an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Queensland in Australia. Dr. Sikka is an adjunct professor of Computer Science at Stanford University and an adjunct professor of Computer Science at East China Normal University in Shanghai. He also has served as the co-chair of the World Economic Forum’s council on AI & Robotics.

Ian Bremmer

Ian Bremmer

President and Founder, Eurasia Group

Oracle OpenWorld

Ian Bremmer is the president and founder of Eurasia Group, the leading global political risk research and consulting firm. He is a prolific thought leader and author, regularly expressing his views on political issues in public speeches, television appearances, and top publications, including Time magazine, where he is the foreign affairs columnist and editor-at-large. Dubbed the “rising guru” in the field of political risk by The Economist, he teaches classes on the discipline as global research professor at New York University. His latest book, Superpower: Three Choices for America’s Role in the World, hit shelves in May 2015.

In 1998, Bremmer established Eurasia Group with just US$25,000. Today, the company has offices in New York, Washington, and London, as well as a network of experts and resources in 90 countries. Eurasia Group provides analysis and expertise on how political developments and national security dynamics move markets and shape investments across the globe. As the firm’s president and most active public voice, Bremmer advises leading executives, money managers, diplomats, and heads of state.

Bremmer is credited with bringing the craft of political risk to financial markets—he created Wall Street’s first global political risk index (GPRI)—and for establishing political risk as an academic discipline. His definition of emerging markets (“those countries where politics matter at least as much as economics for market outcomes”) has become an industry standard. G-Zero, his term for a global power vacuum in which no country is willing and able to set the international agenda, is widely accepted by policymakers and thought leaders.

Bremmer actively discusses the intersection between politics and markets in speeches and the media. He has published nine books including the national bestsellers Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World and The End of the Free Market: Who Wins the War Between States and Corporations? He is a regular columnist for the Financial Times A-List, and has written hundreds of articles for many leading publications. He appears regularly on CNBC, Fox, Bloomberg, CNN, the BBC, and other networks.

Bremmer earned a PhD in political science from Stanford University in 1994 and was the youngest-ever national fellow at the Hoover Institution. In 2007, Bremmer was named a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum, where he is the founding chairman of the Global Agenda Council on Geopolitical Risk. He is a senior fellow at the World Policy Institute and serves on the President’s Council of the Near East Foundation, the Leadership Council for Concordia, and the Board of Trustees of Intelligence Squared.

Bremmer grew up in Boston and currently lives in New York and Washington.
