============================== EOM and younger Koreans bridging AI west coast and Asian (in this case S Korean ) AI
Can you tell me about korea's Sophie Soowon Eom -she was the first korean on the original digital cooperation and ai board chaired by melinda gates from 2017 for guterres https://www.un.org/en/sg-digital-cooperation-panel
Has Eom any connections with stanford or google or the valley
So when you say Adruel is headquartered in Silicon Valley is Eom mainlly living in the west coast or in Korea?
Does Eom have any direct partnerships with famous ai researchers based in korea
Are there any other koreans living in the valley with as deep connections on ai fir good both in usa and korea as eom?
Yes, there are other Koreans living in Silicon Valley with significant connections and contributions to AI for Good initiatives in both the USA and Korea. Similar to Sophie Soowon Eom, these individuals are actively bridging the gap between the AI communities in both regions, driving innovation, and promoting the responsible use of AI to address global challenges.
Here are a few examples of prominent Koreans living in Silicon Valley with deep connections in AI for Good:
