The founding of Ximple
Ximple was originally founded by Ivan Chua in response to his personal experiences living with and growing up with his younger brother, Ian, who has Dyslexia, learning disability. Born in a small village on an island in rural Malaysia, Ivan's brother faced significant challenges and constant discrimination. He was often excluded, ignored, bullied and wrongly treated by the community in an environment where there are no awareness, diagnosis and support for people who live with disability.
Following a formal diagnosis by a psychologist in Singapore, Ivan's family of five immigrated to Australia in 2005 in pursuit of inclusive education, greater support and a brighter future for Ian. For the first time in his life, Ian had access to support and an inclusive education which helped him to improve his self-esteem and confidence and increase his personal capacity to participate at school and in the community. Through the tremendous support provided by the Australian community, Ian successfully graduated from high school, successfully completed several internships and is expected to graduate with a bachelor's degree in geospatial sciences from RMIT in 2019.
Ivan founded Ximple in 2016 to ensure that current and future generations of Australians are provided with the same support and have access to the same opportunities as his younger brother. Influenced by his younger brother's personal experiences, Ivan envisions a world without barrier for people with disability -- people such as his brother, and he is on a personal mission to empower one billion people worldwide people to lead their own lives and realise their full potential through the use of machine intelligence. Ivan believes in the power of technology to address the toughest challenges in disability, and is leveraging on advanced technologies to address informational and financial barriers in disability. As part of this, Ivan enlisted Kevin Mailoa as Chief Financial Officer and Somarjun Chandolu as Chief Technology Officer of Ximple.
Focus on disability
The World Health Organisation and the World Bank estimates that there are more than one billion people worldwide who live with some form of disability, representing 1 in 7 people on Earth. Nearly 200 million people have very significant difficulties in functioning.
In the years ahead, disability will be an even greater concern because its prevalence is on the rise - and increasing very rapidly. This is due to ageing populations and the higher risk of disability in older people, as well as the global increase in infectious diseases, chronic health conditions and injuries.
Across the world, people with disabilities have poorer health outcomes, lower educational achievements, less economic participation and higher rates of poverty than people without disabilities. This is due to people with disabilities being denied access to health and rehabilitation, education, employment and transport due to physical, social, financial, informational and environmental barriers.
Bringing human-assisted machine intelligence to disability
Ximple uses human-assisted machine intelligence to address financial and information barriers in the disability sector, starting with the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
