Dr. Jeremy Pickens, Principal Data Scientist, OpenText

Jeremy Pickens, PhD is one of the world’s leading information retrieval scientists and a pioneer in the field of collaborative exploratory search, a form of information seeking in which a group of people who share a common information need actively collaborate to achieve it. Dr. Pickens has seven patents and patents pending in the field of search and information retrieval. As Principal Data Scientist at OpenText, Dr. Pickens has spearheaded the development of Insight Predict. His ongoing research and development focuses on methods for continuous learning, and the variety of real world technology assisted review workflows that are only possible with this approach. Dr. Pickens earned his doctoral degree at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Center for Intelligent Information Retrieval. He conducted his post-doctoral work at King’s College, London. Before joining Catalyst Repository Systems and later OpenText, he spent five years as a research scientist at FX Palo Alto Lab, Inc. In addition to his OpenText responsibilities, he continues to organize research workshops and speak at scientific conferences around the world.

Dr. Irina Matveeva, Head of Machine Learning, NexLP

Dr. Irina Matveeva is the Head of Machine Learning at NexLP LLC and Adjunct Professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Her research interests include graph-based methods and semi-supervised methods for language applications. Her research focuses on latent semantic models of word and document representations and models of word similarity. Dr. Matveeva received her Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. She co-chaired the TextGraphs workshops in 2012, 2011, 2008, and 2007, and is a reviewer for IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks, Journal for Information Retrieval and Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research.

Dr. David Lewis, Chief Data Scientist, Brainspace

Dave Lewis, Ph.D. is Chief Data Scientist at Brainspace, an AppGate business, where he leads artificial intelligence research and development for their text analytics platform. Prior to joining Brainspace, he was variously a corporate researcher (Bell Labs, AT&T Labs), research faculty member, freelance consultant, and software company co-founder. Dave has published more than 40 peer-reviewed scientific publications and 9 patents. He has served as a consulting expert or expert witness on e-discovery in high-profile litigations, including Kleen Products, da Silva Moore, Actos, FHFA, Rio Tinto, and the VW litigations. In 2006, he was elected a Fellow of the American Association for Advancement of Science for foundational work in text analytics. In 2017, he won a Test of Time Award from ACM SIGIR in 2017 for his invention with W. A. Gale of uncertainty sampling, the most widely used active learning algorithm.
