Our Team

Skilled data scientists are in short supply. It's a discipline where experience is valued. Replacing the data scientist with a software robot necessitates adding skills to the mixture: algorithmic machine learning, cloud services for big data, applied customer experience and artificial intelligence. For this purpose, Data-Miner Proprietary Limited was founded in Sydney, Australia and then reestablished, in 2015, as AI-Data-Miner LLC in New York City, New York with the following team members:

sholom photoSholom M. Weiss, Ph.D. - principal - is a professor (emeritus) of computer science at Rutgers University and a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence. During his academic career, he was the developer of many widely-cited knowledge-based systems and a consultant to many companies in computer, healthcare and energy industries. From 1998 through 2013, he was a member of the research staff in the math department at IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center where he developed machine learning algorithms, analyzed customer data and developed applied systems from health care to manufacturing to sales and marketing. He is a co-author of leading texts on predictive data and text mining and the author of nearly two hundred scientific papers on artificial intelligence and machine learning. In a 1997 predictive data-mining book, co-authored with Nitin Indurkhya, they introduced the term "big data," a term that has made its way into popular media.
