Through my educational background of large scale computer architectures and artificial intelligence, I developed a passion, and indeed expertise, in the complexity of dealing with and managing unstructured information. Prior to founding Ravn Systems, I have held commercial and technical roles with both major corporates and entrepreneurial ventures in the fields of supply chain optimization and unstructured information processing.
As an engineer, my passion has always been about technology and problem solving. I have always been intrigued by the ever-growing mountain of information and am resolved to build solutions which help us explore, discover and learn from it as best as we can.
Big Data is what we call it now, but the problem has been around for much longer. With Ravn Systems I have found the opportunity to build solutions that intelligently identify, categorise, search and establishe relationships between all types of knowledge assets, including people.
My specific remit is the design of the technical architecture of the Ravn product suite.
To achieve that, I have the privilege of leading a team of highly skilled techies.
I strongly believe that at Ravn Systems we are building the next generation information technology.
