BioHacker Badges from Praxis AI

Alex Feltus earned his BioHacker: Bioinformatics badge for completing the Praxis AI experiential journey. BioHackers are a community of digital pioneers who leverage data + skills + AI + cloud computing to solve big biotech challenges. Professor Feltus is using his skills to discover new break-throughs in cancer transcriptomics and plant genomics.

Avaya Engage Experience Builders Panel

The Praxis AI co-founder, Alex Feltus, was featured on a keynote panel at this year’s Avaya ENGAGE conference in Orlando, Florida. He inspired over 2,000+ attendees with his mission for democratized access to digital skills and his success stories with Spaces Learning from Toolwire and Avaya. Together, the panel explored the reinvention of higher education, use of AI in learning, and predictions for the next five years.

As a result of this work, Professor Feltus earned the Innovator of the Year award from Avaya.

Well done, Alex!

Experiential Spaces Learning at Clemson University

When the pandemic forced colleges and universities to transition to online courses, Professor Feltus at Clemson University, South Carolina, USA, combined data-intensive AI content from Praxis AI, LLC with Toolwire Spaces Learning on the Avaya Spaces platform to deliver his own digital content, converting a traditional face-to-face Bioinformatics course into an engaging, collaborative, digital course with hands-on data labs.
