Paul Save   

CEO and Founder

I entered my first Kaggle (machine learning) competition in 2016 and have been a PM on data science projects in various industries. I have spoken on machine learning at events such as ProductCamp Vancouver/Seattle/PDX, Central 1 Momentum, AWS Initiate, and Microsoft's Machine Learning and Data Science conference. I am also an expert on the Mirror Committee "ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 42 - Artificial intelligence" where I helped establish the international management standard for AI: ISO-42001.

As a Métis, I value diversity and inclusion, and once I reach positive cash flow, I will start to offer scholarships to those in need for the programs and memberships we will offer.

I am also a Group Product Manager, Fulfillment Systems and Optimization at Best

Accelerate your data science career.
