Seval Oz

CEO
Aurima AI

Seval is once again pushing the envelope as CEO of a recently funded stealth start-up in Silicon Valley (Aurima.ai) concentrating on camera/radar image fusion for sensory perception in autonomous vehicles. This start up is funded partially by Google Alphabet’s newly announced AI-focused fund, Gradient Ventures, in Mountain View, CA.

Recently CEO of world automotive giant Continental AG’s Intelligent Transportation System’s new division HQ’ed in Silicon Valley, Seval grew the SW engineering team to develop an open stack cloud back end computing architecture for the entire company. This initiative was responsible for Continental’s mobility services and digitalization transformation.

Seval was formerly Senior Director of global business development and partnerships for GoogleX’s self-driving vehicle’s commercial launch. The far-reaching implications of this revolutionary technology hopes to change the way we mobilize as a society. Known as the Chief Troublemaker on her team, Seval was the recipient of the Women in Technology Awards for Courage presented in San Francisco.

Formerly, she was Senior Partner and VP of Finance and Business Development for the Internet search engine, Cuil, sold to Google in 2010. While at Cuil, Seval was responsible for business partnerships, strategic funding and internal financial planning for the company.

Seval received her MBA from Wharton Business School, graduating with High Distinction, and her BA, cum laude, from Wellesley/M.I.T.
