Chief AI Scientist

Aaron is a seasoned technology leader with over 8 years of experience in the software industry and healthcare technology sector, working with organizations such as Alpine Health Systems, Oracle Cerner, Pionetechs, VoiceWorx.ai, and Versabadge. He is a published AI/NLP/Recommender Systems expert with an extensive research background from his time spent as a lead researcher in the labs of institutions such as Georgia Tech and Florida Atlantic University. He holds a BS CS from FAU and MS CS with a specialization in Machine Learning from Georgia Tech. He worked as a researcher in the research labs of famous AI researchers such as Prof. Diyi Yang (currently at Stanford), Prof. Srijan Kumar (currently at Georgia Tech), and Prof. Kwangsoo Yang (currently at FAU) resulting in his novel NLP information extraction work being published in ACL 2022 (Findings) and his unsupervised machine learning work being published in the GeoInformatica 2020 journal and the proceedings of the ACM SIGSPATIAL 2018 conference. During his time with Oracle Cerner Corporation and Pionetechs, he worked as a Senior Software Engineer instrumental in the development and scaling of their HealtheHistory product (an enterprise grade medical record retrieval product serving life insurance companies such as New York Life and USAA, and legal clients). He developed the product from a prototype to a full-fledged solution serving large corporate clients, often processing thousands of orders on a daily basis. One of his accomplishments include significantly increasing the accuracy of the outcome evaluation processes of HealtheHistory's health record retrieval automation (RPA) processes by transitioning the NLP system from a large Expert system to a LLM-based system, which significantly reduced the number of daily orders resulting in human fallbacks to Cerner Operations by roughly 10%. At Alpine Health, Aaron works closely with the CEO, and is responsible for creating and executing upon the technical vision and strategy of the company. He heads the Data Science and NLP team. He is responsible for overseeing all aspects of product development, R&D, software engineering, NLP, and machine learning. As the founding scientist and engineer, he took the technology from its ideation phase to maturity, he led the R&D efforts building a state of the art AI and NLP solution in-house. He works directly with Alpine's venture partners, High Alpha Innovation and OSF HealthCare's Innovation office. OSF HealthCare is an Alpine investor and customer, comprised of 16 hospitals.
