PETER VOSS  |  Founder and CEO

Peter started his accomplished career as an entrepreneur, inventor, engineer and scientist at age 16. After a few years of experience in electronics engineering, at age 25 he started a company to provide advanced custom software development and information-technology services. Seven years later the company employed several hundred people and was successfully listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

After selling his interest in the company in 1993, he worked on a broad range of disciplines -- cognitive science, philosophy and theory of knowledge, psychology, intelligence and learning theory, and computer science -- which served as the foundation for achieving our breakthroughs in artificial general intelligence. In 2001 he started our parent company, Adaptive AI Inc., with the purpose of developing systems with a high degree of general intelligence and commercializing products based on these inventions.

Peter often writes and presents on various philosophical topics including rational ethics, freewill and artificial minds; and is deeply involved with futurism and life-extension.
