David Carvalhão

Chief Innovation Officer @ Vigil365

Keynote Speaker


I am an obsessive serial entrepreneur, polymath, creative thinker and public speaker, having 21 startups under my belt, some tech patents around signal processing and energy storage and a track record for getting exotic things done.

For the past few years I have been invested in helping startups get to market, as a Business Angel, public speaker, trainer and mentor at some of the best acceleration programs in the World, such as the Lisbon Challenge, EDP InnoEnergy Accelerator and the European Innovation Academy, as well as being an expert disruptive business/technology evaluator for the European Commission and a few European investment funds.

For the pas 3 years I have been actively promoting awareness among IT professionals about the social and ethical consequences of the usage of AI and machine learning, as I believe they are better positioned to give a decisive contribution in the shaping of the policies that will allow humanity to reap most of the benefits from this revolution while avoiding most of the pitfalls.
