Founded in 2012, Kimera Systems, Inc. is the developer of Nigel™ – the world’s first human-like artificial intelligence technology that makes networked “smart” devices intelligent. As Nigel learns, it becomes aware of people’s personal needs and understands the context of their activities. With this awareness, Nigel transforms passive apps and devices, which today require user inputs, into a dynamic services environment that constantly adapts to people’s needs. Nigel proactively launches apps and delivers information to assist people in their everyday lives. The company is headquartered in Portland, Oregon.
Kimera has assembled a team of software, network and telecom professionals with well over a century of combined executive experience to bring the first commercially deployable artificial general intelligence technologies to market.
Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Mounir Shita wants to change the world. A serial entrepreneur with a background in computer science, Mounir envisions a world where the devices on which people depend are not merely tools, but actively participate in helping people achieve their goals. As CEO of Kimera Systems, the company he co-founded in 2012, Mounir is leading a team of talented engineers and business executives in revolutionizing the way technology and humans interact. His creation, which he began developing in 2005, is a single-algorithm artificial general intelligence (AGI) technology that learns the way humans do, giving connected devices common sense learned through observation, and the ability to proactively help people throughout their daily lives.
Co-Founder & Chief Operating Officer
Two passions have shaped Nick Gilman’s career: technology and conducting business on a global scale. A serial entrepreneur himself, Nick brings more than two decades of international business development experience, working across linguistic and cultural boundaries in the technology and telecom arenas, to his role as Chief Operating Officer of Kimera Systems. In this role, Nick is responsible for the business affairs of the company, including strategic planning, resource management, investor relations, vendor relations, and strategic partner development.
Chief Product Officer
With a job history that provides a perfect overlay to the complexities of the Nigel infrastructure, Carl Johnson brings more than two decades of technology product marketing and management experience to his role as Chief Product Officer at Kimera Systems. Carl is responsible for productizing the Nigel AGI technology into vertically driven solutions, bringing new and evolutionary products to market.
Chief Marketing Officer
To bring Nigel AGI solutions to market and establish the Kimera brand among the leading companies in artificial intelligence, the company turned to John Sidline, a seasoned technology marketing executive with more than twenty years in telecom marketing executive positions. John and his team oversee all of Kimera’s marketing and communications.
Managing Director, Kimera Europe
Artificial general intelligence will change the world, so the company is already looking beyond its North America headquarters to bring AGI to the world. To lead the company’s planned international expansion Kimera has turned to an executive with a proven track record in helping technology companies enter new markets, Gabriele Viebach. Gabriele is responsible for setting up operations in new markets across Europe, where she will build and lead Kimera’s European team.
