Founder and CEO, Livox
Carlos Pereira is the CEO of Livox, a company focused on creating innovative solutions for people with disabilities. People with disabilities are the group with the highest risk of social exclusion, especially non-verbal people with disabilities. Pereira created a software named Livox that is the evolution of alternative communication. Livox adjusts itself according to the user's disability and enables them to do much more than just speaking - through a tablet. His software also uses Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing to enable people with disabilities to communicate up to 20 times faster.
