Uber Lead Data Science Manager
Hugh Williams leads the Applied Machine Learning group at Uber. The team is part of a larger central ML org that encompasses several teams working on ML platforms (Michelangelo), applied models (AML), and cutting-edge research (AI Labs). The AML group focuses on bringing technically advanced approaches (i.e. Deep Learning, semi-supervised learning, etc) to production in order to solve Uber’s toughest problems. Before Uber, Hugh spent time building ML solutions at Google and Capital One. The primary focus was developing behavioral models and intervention strategies to steer those behaviors. Hugh also maintains a non-technical data science blog on Medium.
