I’ve been an entrepreneur, a government researcher and a university professor. I once designed, built and sold software for a living. I’ve even designed and sold a music web site. As a researcher, I have worked on many problems: from medical diagnostic to collaborative data processing. Lately, I’ve been mostly active in data warehousing and recommender systems. My Slope One recommender algorithm is used by hundreds of e-commerce sites. I love to write: my blog has thousands of followers. I also have two sons, two cats and a beautiful wife.
