Anish Chadalavada

Operating Partner

Seattle

Anish is an Operating Partner on the Deep Tech team at Point72 Ventures. In his role, he focuses on translating academic research into applied thematic areas of interest.  

Prior to joining Point72 Ventures, Anish was a manager leading the artificial intelligence strategy and M&A for Microsoft, where he drove the company’s product development and investment strategy on next generation communications, edge infrastructure, applied machine learning, and natural language processing. 

My area of expertise is applied machine learning. 

Today, our ability to collect information from the world rapidly outpaces our ability to make sense of that information. Machine learning is the bridge between all that data and human understanding.  

What does the future look like? 

I see the near-term future as one characterized by human augmentation, with artificial intelligence potentially advancing everyone’s quality of life. In the long term, I’m interested in foundational questions as we embark on this new age of technology – how we ensure responsible handling of potential superintelligence, think about insurance and safeguarding.
