Innovator, Entrepreneur, Scientist, Investor
I’m a computer scientist, entrepreneur, investor, and advisor who’s driven innovation in almost every aspect of AI—from foundational science to applied enterprise systems—for more than 30 years. Because in my work I’ve been accountable for successful end-to-end applications, I’ve had the chance to think deeply about what separates failure from success. I’ve also been honored to enjoy a front-row seat to over 100 AI projects: watching the “magic” of AI leading to innovation breakthroughs in many sectors, including semantic search engines like Powerset and Bing; agriculture; government work across all enterprises of NASA; multiple investments in AI-enabled healthcare, pharma, and medical technology; transportation, retail, consumer and entertainment, lunar payloads, and more. Also, as a founding board member at Singularity University, I have worked to advance thinking about AI technology and applications for organizations beyond my own around the world.
