Ben is Chief AI Evangelist at DataRobot and a recognised and engaging speaker for AI with over 16 years of machine learning experience.
Ben has a diverse career including work with Intel/Micron, as the HPC/AI expert for the hedge fund AIQ where he built out models using a 600 GPU cluster to predict stock movements based on the news, and as the Chief Data Scientist for HireVue. He joined DataRobot in early 2020 when they acquired an AutoML start-up that he co-founded by the name of Zeff.ai.
