Ananya Chadha is a 17-year-old Machine Learning developer from Toronto. She worked at ConsenSys as a technical consultant, has done gene-editing research at the University of Toronto, and is now on the investment committee at Babel Ventures. After working in a gene-editing lab, she developed a platform “that put genomic data on the blockchain,” allowing for anonymous uploading of genetic data to research data sets, while users still got paid for their contributions. The platform was moved into ConsenSys. She has also developed brain controlled prosthetics, cars, and VR games with support from Microsoft. Her brain computer interfaces won the Impossible Science Challenge.
