Reboot.AI began in August 2017, when Dhruv Sahi and Matt O'Connor recognized Hong Kong's gulf between acadmic talent within AI and business needs for applied AI. Their pragmatic, results oriented approach to empowering companies and indiviudals to apply cutting edge technologies to actual business problems quickly caught hold, and since its formation Reboot has helped local and international companies alike build, deploy, and prepare for the Data Economy.
In all the buzz words, people forget AI, Blockchain, machine learning, etc. are tools to build solutions- not solutions themselves. In everything we do, we recognize that building the right solution for the right problem is the difference between applications which fail in the real world and applications which change the world. Our model of applied data scientists supported by domain specific experts ensures that cutting edge solutions are designed, developed, and deployed for maximum results.
Dhruv is a prominent data scientist and machine learning engineer in the Hong Kong startup community, having transformed the business analytics department for a retail startup whose Series A was led by Alibaba Group. His professional experience includes building custom models, assembling interactive dashboards, and deploying enterprise scale solutions so that business leaders can make the most of data. His background includes a degree in Pure Mathematics and a career in equity derivatives, which lead him to working with end-to-end data solutions including warehousing, pipelines, model creation, cloud computing (AWS), and workflow automation.
Matt is a full stack developer, former algorithmic trader, and PMI-ACP certified Agile leader with experience transforming business units, automating enterprise scale workflows, and overseeing distributed teams as large as 60. For nearly a decade, he has solved large scale business problems with data driven solutions, including as the senior member of the algorithmic trading desk for Bridgewater Associates, the world's largest hedge fund by AUM. He has given talks on AI and development to crowds of hundreds and been published in print and online for a variety of publications, most notably The South China Morning Post and The New York Times.
