Aaron was a founding lead engineer at Scaled Inference, where he built core components in the first API-driven autonomous optimization platform. Before that, he created one of the first fast, large scale topic modelling algorithms, and built core components of large scale ML systems at CMU, Google AI, NICTA, and others.
He won multiple awards in AI, including KDD Best Paper Award. He received MSc in Language Technologies with a focus on machine learning research at Carnegie Mellon University, and BSc (Advanced) with First Class Honours at Australian National University with quadruple majors in Computer Science, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistics. He started coding at the age of 7, and started mining Bitcoin in 2011.
Aaron lived in Beijing, New Zealand, Australia, before he moved to the US (thanks to Einstein Green Card).
