2024 Conference & AGM


Radhika Dirks, PhD

CEO, Xlabs

No one is better equipped than Radhika Dirks to answer both the big questions and the practical considerations about generative AI. She’s been a crucial voice in the AI conversation for years, was named to Deloitte’s top women in the AI world, and has been featured everywhere from Fast Company to the BBC (and many more). She founded and led the only other moonshot factory that exists outside of Google.

In uniquely human, powerfully hopeful talks, she places generative AI in the context of what’s already happened in the AI space and what’s on the horizon, then breaks it down into the strategy and tactics that every leader needs to gain an edge in the AI future. She shows you how the rapid advance of this technology has brought moonshots—our biggest, most ambitious ideas—within reach for everybody. It has never been easier or faster to make your dreams a reality, and Radhika can show you how.

With powerful leadership, Radhika’s Artificial Intelligence includes co-founding Seldn, an AI start-up that accurately predicted the rise of ISIS two weeks before The New York Times coined the term, and her work as CEO and co-founder of XLabs, a moonshot factory for Artificial Intelligence innovations that is already solving huge problems—like getting closer to the cure for cancer. At Ribo AI, her technology found potential cures for 11 cancers within its first 1.5 years.

Radhika was also a founding member of Shell’s $1.5B venture capital group and was COO of Rotary Gallop, a game theory-based fintech firm. Her work on quantum computing and Artificial Intelligence has been cited hundreds of times. She holds a Ph.D. in Quantum Computing and an M.S. in Nanotechnology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
