I’m used to building things. Bluetooth, 3G, 4G were great inventions, but you also have to build the industry. I look forward to that aspect of Aquabyte, to grow an increasingly vital market.”

— Dr. Jan Uddenfeldt, former Ericsson and Sony Mobile CTO

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, Aug. 31, 2022 / — Aquabyte, which uses computer vision and AI to give fish farms unprecedented insight into the health, growth and sustainability of their fish, today announced that Dr. Jan Uddenfeldt has joined the company’s board of directors.

dr. Uddenfeldt is one of the foremost inventors and industrial drivers of wireless technology (GSM, Mobile Broadband, Bluetooth, 3G and 4G LTE) and is known for his ability to combine entrepreneurial product development with industrial scale optimization and market building.

The former CTO of Ericsson and Sony Mobile moved to Silicon Valley 14 years ago and is “always drawn to complex problems and their solutions”. He now advises both multi-billion dollar companies and startups: he has worked with more than 12 startup companies and made several exits.

Uddenfeldt said he had heard rumors about Aquabyte in Silicon Valley and was intrigued by the company’s leadership in a critical new industry, as well as its complex systemic solutions.

“Aquabyte provides highly advanced hardware and software, using Smart AI and Computer Vision to improve, disrupt, and make the fish farming industry more efficient and sustainable. The product itself is very important, but it is really a complex systems business, in a way that I recognize from the network industry. I think I can be of service there,” Uddenfeldt said.

“The market for sustainable fish is going to grow and that is very promising. And of course it’s nice that it’s in Norway. I look forward to contributing to the synergy of Scandinavian and Silicon Valley culture,” he added.

Aquabyte CEO Bryton Shang noted that Dr. Uddenfeldt with roots in Scandinavia and Silicon Valley is reflective of the current size of his company and his future ambitions. “Dr. Uddenfeldt’s achievements stand alone and we are honored to have him join our Board of Directors. I am excited to leverage his deep experience in combining the contributions of international teams to bring the strongest product to market,” said Shang.

Reflecting on his own experience, Uddenfeldt noted, “I’m used to building things. Bluetooth, 3G, 4G were all great inventions, but you also have to build the industry. I look forward to that aspect of Aquabyte where I will bring both the entrepreneurial and industrial perspectives to help grow an increasingly vital market and join the company’s mission of meeting the global demand for sustainable proteins.”
