Science grad wins big with biodiversity tech start-up

As the Women of the Future winner, Camille will receive a prize valued at over $100,000 to help fund the programming needed to bring in deep tech AI learning to the Xylo Systems platform.

On Xylo Systems Camille states: “we are losing a species every three to five minutes on this planet. There are thousands of conservation teams and researchers working to save our species, but they don’t have an easy way to connect and share information and make informed decisions."

Using artificial intelligence, the platform aggregates conservation data, so we have a better idea of what work is being done to end duplication between projects and help scientists to instantly share discoveries and build common knowledge.

We are also helping to make conservation projects more agile and effective using predictive analytics.

What does winning the 2021 Women of the Future award mean to you and your work?

Winning this award is a huge pinch me moment! It such a prestigious award and is massive recognition for the work that needs to be done in preserving biodiversity and climate change in general.

The cash prize is a big injection to help us get the specialised tech support that we need to build in the more complex aspects of the platform, like machine learning.

Not only that, there is also a fantastic support system that comes with this award including mentoring from the judging panel and plenty of media and PR exposure, which an early start-up like mine could only dream of!

My hope is that this Award will inspire other young women and indigenous peoples to consider a career in science, tech and innovation.
