Inteligencia artificial/Aprendizaje automático

Prague, Cape Town

Olga Afanasjeva is the COO of GoodAI, a general artificial intelligence R&D company based in Prague, Czech Republic. She has been working at the company since its early days. With a background in social sciences and art, she is pursuing her passion for discovery and for pushing the limits of “possible” as a leader of the GoodAI’s General AI Challenge.

Olga is an AI evangelist with a background in arts and social sciences, pursuing her passion for discovery and redefining the limits of what is possible. She leads the day to day activities of GoodAI.

Olga combines her two passions by working in the General Artificial Intelligence research company GoodAI by day, and dedicating herself to fashion design by night. Olga lives and works in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and South Africa. She owes the inspiration for her work in both fashion and AI to the small, but tenacious and fearless honey badger, a South African native.

Dominik started working at GoodAI in June 2021 as a Game Designer

" With my friend from university we used to brainstorm a lot about games that we would like to play someday that just don’t exist today. Though what we are cooking is a secret I can tell you I was blown away that GoodAI is making a game we used to think and talk a lot about as some form of a fantasy. "

Jan started working at GoodAI in February 2016 as a Researcher

"I lived and studied abroad for a long time and at one point I decided to go back to my home country, the Czech Republic. When searching for interesting places to work, I read an article about GoodAI and after further investigation I realised that it was a perfect place for my skills and interests. After, almost by chance, meeting Marek, our CEO in Seoul (SK) and talking with him, I knew that I wanted to be part of his vision. After talking to others on the team, it was a done deal."


GoodAI started as a research and development initiative inside Keen Software House in January 2014, when CEO Marek Rosa invested $10M USD into the project.

At Good AI we are focused on 3 areas

  • Research of AGI
  • Applied AI & Robotics
  • AI Game development

Our long-term goal is to build general artificial intelligence that will automate cognitive processes in science, technology, business, and other fields. We conduct our own research, advocate fundamental AI research at the EU governmental level, and forge a community of like-minded groups through the GoodAI Grants program.

GoodAI is a company with around 30 talented people working all across the world.

GoodAI stands apart from other AI companies because of our roadmap, framework, and big-picture view. We pursue general AI with a long-term, 10+ year vision, and remain dedicated to this goal. We will not be distracted by narrow AI approaches or short-term commercialization, though we are certain to find useful applications for our general AI technology along the way.

Our roadmap, framework, and experimental implementations are at a very early stage and should be taken as works in progress. We are focused on the gradual accumulation of skills and recursive self-improvement. We do research in growing network topologies and modular networks and train and teach our AI in our School for AI.

At GoodAI, we want to create a positive future for everyone. Developing general AI will be the most helpful thing in human history, and we want to help make this dream come true.
