Kenny Daniel is founder and CTO of Algorithmia. He came up with the idea for Algorithmia while working on his PhD and seeing the plethora of algorithms that never saw the light of day. Kenny’s goal with Algorithmia is to accelerate AI development by creating a marketplace where algorithm developers can share their creations and application developers can make their applications smarter by incorporating the latest machine-learning algorithms. Kenny has also worked with companies like wine enthusiast app Delectable to build out their deep learning-based image recognition systems. It was during this time that Kenny saw the possibilities of what can be achieved when companies have access to state-of-the-art AI tools. Kenny holds degrees from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Southern California, where he studied artificial intelligence and mechanism design.
