Aquabyte has announced that Dr. Jan Uddenfeldt has joined the company’s Board of Directors. He is one of the main inventors and industry drivers of wireless technology (GSM, mobile broadband, Bluetooth, 3G, and 4G LTE).
Also, Uddenfeldt is known for his ability to bridge entrepreneurial product development with industrial-scale optimization and market-building.
As a result, the computer vision and AI company confirmed Dr. Jan is “always drawn to complex problems and their solutions”. Currently, he is the former CTO of Ericsson and Sony Mobile. He has worked with more than 12 startup companies and made several exits.
“The market for sustainable fish is going to grow”
Regarding the incorporation, the new board member said: “Aquabyte is delivering very advanced hardware and software. Using Smart AI and Computer Vision to improve and disrupt the fish farming industry and make it more efficient and sustainable. The product is very important itself. But it’s a complex system business, in a way I recognize it from the network industry. I think I can be of use there.”
“The market for sustainable fish is going to grow, and that is very promising. Plus, of course, it’s fun that it’s in Norway. I look forward to contributing to the synergy of Scandinavian and Silicon Valley culture,” he added.
In addition, Aquabyte CEO Bryton Shang indicated: “Dr. Uddenfeldt’s achievements stand on their own. We are honored that he will join our Board of Directors. I am excited to tap his deep experience in blending the contributions of international teams to bring the strongest product to market.”
Finally, Uddenfeldt mentioned how his experience with technology will make an input to the company: “I’m looking forward to that aspect of Aquabyte, bringing both the entrepreneurial and industrial perspectives to help grow an increasingly vital market and join the company’s mission of meeting the world’s demand for sustainable protein.”
Aquabyte was built at the intersection of fish welfare, computer vision/AI, and engineering, to improve fish farming efficiency and sustainability. Its international team of machine learning experts, entrepreneurs, and aquaculture biologists are focused on delivering solutions with a real-world impact. With offices in San Francisco, New York, Chile, and Norway, Aquabyte partners with fish farms to transform aquaculture and meet the world’s growing demand for sustainable protein.
