My name is Nima Sheikholeslami, also known as Nima Shei. I was born and raised in Iran and moved to the US to pursue my dream of creating “a thing” more intelligent than the human brain. This dream has lead me to different areas, such as medicine, biology, neuroscience, control and electrical engineering, mathematics, computation, financial markets, AI and more recently blockchain technology.

In the meantime, as an entrepreneur, I’ve started and developed several companies; and I’ve dreamed about many ventures to start.

Right now, I’m working on emotion-based AI.

I’m a vegetarian and an animal rights activist. I live with my beautiful wife and two rescued dogs in Miami.
