What did you do before the factory?
Previously I worked at Skin Analytics, leading a great team of researchers in developing novel and robust algorithms for computer-aided detection and analysis of malignant skin lesions. I directed the company's research strategy and academic collaborations and also interfaced with our cross-functional teams (clinical, engineering, regulatory and commercial) to translate our research into safe and effective products. My research focuses on image processing and machine learning (including deep learning).
What do you do at the factory?
As a member of the data science team, I combine novel natural language processing and machine learning algorithms with rapid prototyping to solve real business problems. In addition, I contribute to the concepting and testing of new ideas that revolve around artificial intelligence.
What makes you a good founder?
A passion for new ideas, driving technology to its limits and a systematic approach to problem solving. Knowing the importance of a good team.
