Chetan Dube is a widely recognised speaker on autonomics, cognitive computing and the future impact of a digital workforce. He serves on the board of numerous IT-related institutions. In 2017, he was listed as one of the 9 greatest AI minds in the world to keep an eye on by ForbesHe is also a distinguished member of the Forbes Technology Council.

Born in New Delhi and raised in Paris and London, Dube came to the U.S. to pursue a doctorate in theoretical computer science at New York University.

While at NYU he began exploring the artificial intelligence principles and philosophies that form the basis of the Amelia platform. Dube was fascinated by the Turing enigma, which examines whether machines can think. As opposed to narrow AI (where nonsentient programs are focused on narrow tasks), Dube’s research has focused on deep AI. He pioneered the use of AI-enabled digital labor across industries. He’s been awarded several U.S. patents for developing cognitive models, and EY recognized him as "Entrepreneur of the Year" for leading research in AI emulating human thinking and approaching the Turing horizon.

Dube believes that within time, it will become harder to distinguish Androids from man. Chetan envisions a world where man and machine work closely together to build a radically more efficient planet.
