I’ve got my Bs.C in Information Systems from the Technion at 2008 , while I was working as a student at Intel Research department in Israel, doing Machine learning oriented research .

I then spent 2 amazing years working at Outbrain , a cool start up that changes the way you read on the web (you just don’t even know you've already used it). I then moved to Clearforest - a Thomson Reuters company - where I worked as an NLP software engineer and had the the change to work with leading expert in the NLP world and learn a bunch of new stuff (Whoo!) and algorithms. Finally I've joined the Natural Language Understanding team at Ginger Software, where we've dealt mainly with Speech to text algorithms and infrastructure, and now I'm working on my Thesis.

I’ve always been fascinated by computer science – everything from machine learning algorithms via vision problems to the best way to manage concurrency in Java and debugging log files (which is the real programmers porn ). Currently I feel like StackOverflow is the best thing that happened since bread came sliced!

As Plutarch said – “The mind is a fire to be kindled , not a vessel to be filled.” . So far , I’ve never been cold.
