Mikhail Belkin (Chief Scientific Officer)

Associate Professor Mikhail Belkin is a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Ohio State University. His research focuses on designing and analyzing practical algorithms for machine learning based on non-linear structure of high dimensional data, in particular manifold and spectral methods.


Ben Stone (Chief Technology Officer)

Dr Ben Stone is currently a R&D Web Search Engineer with YourAmigo. His Ph.D. was in the area of HCI, and focused on the modeling of human navigation behavior through web-based environments using computational models of lexical semantics. While working at Ohio State University, Ben developed software applications for Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) and the United States' Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR).
