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.”
