Julia Bossmann is an expert on our future with Artificial Intelligence, currently active as Entrepreneur in Residence at Singularity University. Prior to SU, Julia served at the Global Future Council for Artificial Intelligence at the World Economic Forum and was president of Foresight Institute, a leading non-profit for world-changing technologies.

In her free time she enjoys hosting talk events, brain hacking, Beat Saber, art, and being in nature.
