CxO, AI & startup addict, PhD, challenge lover and determined to bring products to life and teams to happiness.
Do you want to know if a coding test or an exercise at home is best for your case? Do you want to know what skills are the most critical for creating a successful team? Do you have the right onboarding and product development processes in place? Are you worried about how remote or hybrid models are impacting your team's performance?
I have hired, managed and worked with dozens of data & software engineering professionals including:
- data scientists
- machine/deep learning engineers
- business/data analysts
- various front/back end & full-stack developers (python, js, ruby)
- product owners/managers
- linguists, annotators, researchers,...
Both junior and senior, including managers.
Learn from my mistakes and my successes.
I will take the time to understand your needs and, equipped with a well-developed intuition and knowledge of best practices, find a solution that will make your team work.
Businesses of all sizes are often faced with the hard decision of taking the risk of investing in a R&D project, or falling behind in an ever-changing world.
With over 10 years of experience in the R&D, 5 of which in key decision-maker roles, I have learned how to evaluate risks and rewards of R&D projects, how to plan and execute them.
A R&D project is a great investment for any size of company, and business leaders err on both sides when deciding:
a) playing it safe, they don't innovate and fall behind
b) misguided, they embark on projects that are deemed to fail from day 1.
I can help you correctly assess the technical aspects and coach you away from common biases impacting such decisions.
Do you need guidance or advice regarding a text mining or NLP task?
I have extensive knowledge and experience that can go from helping you quickly adapt an existing solution (quick win) to helping you build complex products and teams.
My experience as a researcher, a maker and a leader in the field of NLP includes a PhD and projects with budgest of several millions.
I can help you with every type of task dealing with text:
- data preparation, processing and pre-processing text for text analytics or machine learning
- natural language understanding / NLU
- natural language generation / NLG
- sentiment analysis (twitter or other)
- information extraction from structured or unstructured documents
- multilingual approaches
- data annotation by in-house or outsourced teams
With > 10 years in the R&D world and holding lead and c-level positions since 2015, I have seen many data science and other innovation projects and departments in companies of different sizes failing to deliver results.
My solution to this is putting in place or enhancing cross-team collaboration, use proven software and product management methods.
I can help you in finding technical or process-related solutions for some of these quite common problems.
