Hey! I’m Neri

Machine learning expert, entrepreneur, software engineer, technical mentor, author & unshakable optimist dedicated to helping your AI project succeed.


How it all started

The fascination with science, mathematics and technology started at an early age and I ended up studying software engineering. During my thesis, I optimised the energy flows within electrical vehicles using advanced neural network techniques, the results were so astonishingly beneficial that I knew then that this was how I wanted to have impact.

Embarking on my mission, I quickly realise that making the world a better place with technology isn’t easy and doing it alone is impossible. Creating partnerships, alignment, combining skillsets and working closely with others is the essence of success.

The focus, therefore, is to help people like you dream big and back it up with meaningful actions and results. Seeing ideas, that at first seemed impossible, develop, go through optimisations, take form and eventually lead to groundbreaking products, is an incredible experience. It’s this process that gives me tremendous energy and a source of fulfilment.

How it’s going

I’m proud to have personally mentored 200+ data scientists (all going from zero to hero) — fuelling incredible professional growth. As well as, being involved in 50+ successful commercial projects covering a wide range of different industries. All these products have compounded together to impact millions.

From these people and projects, I continue to learn new things each day and expand my own ideas about what the future will look like and how best to build it.

Which brings me to you.

I’m here to serve. My company is built on a bedrock of love, a passion for what’s possible and a commitment to being an unstoppable force for good.
