Josh Williams » President & Chief Science Officer, Kontagent

Session: BIG DATA SPOTLIGHT: BIG DATA IS DEAD! LONG LIVE SMART DATA!

Josh is responsible for strategic revenue projects, data science and R&D. He is responsible for driving Kontagent’s world class proprietary data processing, analysis platform and algorithms into new verticals and markets. A serial entrepreneur, Josh has led two successful start-ups to two large exits — the first as CTO at an early big data firm in automated real-time financial securities analysis which was acquired in 2003, and the second as CEO and CTO at a leading game technology company which was acquired in early 2007. Josh is an investor and loves helping other entrepreneurs however he can. In his personal time, he… well, mostly just works more, much to his lovely wife’s bemusement and occasional chagrin.
