Amber Nigam: Improving Metabolic Health for Billions through AI

Amber: Happy to be with you, Spiffy! At basys.ai, we are addressing the massively challenging and underserved domain of capacity-building for providers (i.e. doctors and hospitals) to address metabolic health-related issues. Our mission is to enable providers in their journey of managing metabolic health for billions through artificial intelligence (AI). Although many companies have tried solving this problem by directly reaching out to the customers or the employees through employers (B2B2C), the provider-side has remained largely untouched. We believe providers are the change-makers. They should be involved from the get-go. AI without context has often been misguided, if not directly harmful. Therefore, we involve the right stakeholders at the right time and remove blindspots from healthcare.

Anjie Liu: Developing Elegant Scientific Solutions for Gut Relief
Anjie: Spiffy, thanks for having me! Our mission at Kiwi Biosciences is to make food painless for the 15% of the population with gut disorders. For many folks with digestive issues like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (a condition where one’s gut may be hypersensitive and might not pass food along at normal speeds), certain foods—even nutritious ones!—contain triggers that cause pain and discomfort. We create solutions that break down those triggers, using enzymes, so everyone can enjoy delicious and diverse foods.
