I'm the Founder and General Partner of Air Street Capital, a venture capital firm investing in AI-first technology and life science companies. I co-author the annual State of AI Report and write the monthly Guide to AI newsletter. I also founded The Research and Applied AI Summit, a community for entrepreneurs and researchers in AI, and serve as Managing Trustee of The RAAIS Foundation, a UK-registered charity with a mission to advance education and research in artificial intelligence for the common good. We offer grants for open source projects, research and education. I am also leading Spinout.fyi, which seeks to improve university spinout creation starting with open anonymised data on deal terms.
I earned an M.Phil and Ph.D. in computational and experimental cancer research as a Gates and Dr. Herchel Smith Scholar at the University of Cambridge, and a BA in biology from Williams College. I've published research that leverages both experimental and computational approaches to understand how we might stem the fatal spread of cancer around the body.
I also tweet sometimes from @nathanbenaich.
