Director of Cognitive Interfaces, Amazon
After 20 years in Speech, Natural Language and UX, over 12 years of Executive Leadership and Market Strategy & extensive hands-on experience on Cognitive Computing & Conversational Agents, I envision a world where smart, ubiquitous & multimodal conversational interfaces will improve the lives of billions of people, and I am proud to be one of the architects that will make this vision come true.
I have built and led high-performance teams with top talent, developed leading-edge Virtual Assistant technology and tools, successfully deployed disruptive solutions internationally, raised millions in venture capital, won multiple international awards and driven my company through a successful exit.
I am passionate about disruptive innovation, overcoming great business & technological challenges, and inspiring others to grow, lead and prevail. My strong technical background together with an extensive business-intensive track-record and result-oriented focus have made me a strategic thinker, a big dreamer and a relentless go getter. I am a big fan of lean and product-oriented development, inter-team coordination and value-driven organizations.
