A Nigerian Tech expert, David Gbodi Odaibo has apparently passed on in his sleep, 7 days subsequent to winning a $125 million U.S government contract.
His sibling and CEO of Retina-AI Health Incorporation, Mr. Stephen Odaibo described how he kicked the bucket in a post shared on LinkedIn.
Stephen said his sibling who was completely immunized and didn’t have COVID-19, had a cardiovascular arrhythmia/respiratory failure in his rest and passed on at 42 years old. He uncovered that the passing has left them crushed.
Prior to his demise, the Tech genius, David wrote an algorithm for automatically detecting threats at airports and it won a $125 Million agreement from Department of Homeland security, prevailing over organizations upheld by billions of dollars.
“My brother, David Gbodi Odaibo, passed away yesterday. My heart is broken. He had a cardiac arrhythmia/heart attack in his sleep. He was fully vaccinated and did not have covid. He and I were so close. He was only 42.
David was kind, gentle, brilliant, and humble.
He had a PhD in Computer Engineering and was a Kaggle Grandmaster, the highest attainable skill level in practical Machine Learning. He introduced me to AI.
The algorithm he wrote for automatically detecting threats at Airports just won a $125 Million contract from Department of Homeland security about 1 wk ago. His code beat out companies backed by Billions of dollars. So in the future when you safely fly the skies, please remember my brother David.
Our hearts are broken. My poor parents, his wife and two young children. His 4 siblings. We are devastated.
David and I were tremendously aligned in our interests and would often talk for hours. Our connection was rare and precious. We ended phone conversations with “love you.”
Hug your loved ones and tell them you love them.
Though there may be sorrow in the night, joy comes in the morning. I’m comforted that David is with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
