Intelligent Learning at Scale

We are a passionate team that is transforming the way we learn.

YOURIKA was born from the idea that we should be able to learn and discover anything, anywhere, and at anytime.   We aim to help the world learn more.  To accomplish this vision , we have assembled a team of leading experts that are pushing the boundaries of artificial intelligence to develop a trailblazing AI Platform that helps online educators and trainers deliver learning experiences their users need (on-demand, personalized, and adaptive) at scale.

We are a team of values-driven leaders with experience building winning teams, A.I. technologies, and businesses. Rob Henderson (CEO), has successfully built and led several winning teams including a student platform that scaled to millions of users. Dr. Shady Shehata (CTO), has spent the last 20 years engineering A.I. powered learning platforms – most recently for Desire2Learn (D2L), one of world’s premier learning management companies, where he led both the business intelligence and data teams. Dr. Fakhri Karray (Chief Scientist), has served as the University of Waterloo’s academic advisor for the prestigious Amazon’s Alexa Fellowship (awarded to only four universities worldwide in its first cycle including University of Waterloo, Carnegie Mellon University and John Hopkins University). He is the Loblaws Research Chair in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Waterloo and the co-director of the Artificial Intelligence Institute.
