Give a brief overview of your background and your role in the company.
I am the chief technology officer and co-founder of Avaamo, also the leader in conversational AI.
Before Avaamo, I spent more than 15 years designing massively scalable distributed software as
vice president of products for the social computing division at TIBCO. I was responsible for
building tibbr, TIBCO's SaaS-based social computing platform. During that time I successfully
scaled engineering, support, and services to serve customers in 121 countries.
Earlier at TIBCO, I handled product strategy and management of TIBCO's core portfolio of
business integration products and, a $400 million product line. I've also worked as a software
engineer and architect in messaging, e-commerce and cloud software and have picked up a dozen
patents. In the earlier part of my career, most of the products I was building were about
connecting business applications. The idea with Avaamo is roughly the same except we are
bringing the automation to the last mile of interaction so it can better serve customers.
How do you diversify your tech solutions that appeal to your target audience?
First, I think it's important to tell you a little more about Avaamo. We're a deep-learning
software company that specializes in conversational interfaces to solve specific problems in the
enterprise. Our primary goal is to make conversational computing for the enterprise a reality.
The way we're doing that is moving past technology that merely answers commands to
technology that understands context
