is a Czech visionary, entrepreneur, mentor and artificial intelligence popularizer. He believes science and technology can help people achieve higher, richer levels of existence.
After 27 years of a successful business IT career, he founded and runs a company called AI Startup Incubator. Its team finds clever, innovative and impactful ideas that use artificial intelligence, then prepares them for the global market. Often, these ideas come from students, entrepreneurs or corporate employees who are unable to pursue them due to a lack of funds, time, and/or technological know-how.
“I live my dream,” says Petr Šrámek about the incubator. “There is no room for borders between countries in the field of artificial intelligence. Our borders are limited only by our courage and curiosity, and every day they are moved.”
Petr is a co-founder of the Platform on Artificial Intelligence at the Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic, a partner of the European Commission. He is a member of Peter Diamandis´s organization Abundance 360, Singularity University, Lifeboat Foundation and a High Commissioner for Czech Republic in the World Business Angels Investment Forum (WBAF).

Topics from a wide variety of AI-related fields as well as noteworthy events and publications are discussed here, Petr’s take on latest developments offered. Stay tuned.
