10. Suvi Uski, Co-founder and CEO, SomeBuddy

It may look simple, but SomeBuddy is exactly the sort of AI tool the world shouldn’t need, but does. On the surface, it’s a chatbot. But it offers legal assessment, psychological first aid, social media tips and an action plan for victims of online harassment and cyberbullying. More than half the people submitting a report to the app have been identified as the victims of crime. Suvi Uski, a social media researcher, founded and runs the company. She was placed third in the 2020 Women in AI Awards (see also Deva Senevirathne and Raluca Crisan in this list). SomeBuddy is currently available in Uski’s native Finland and Sweden, we hope to see this important tool rolled out globally to ensure the safety and confidence of a new generation of AI talent.
