Co-founder and Cheif AI Officer ZIFF Inc.
Ben Taylor is most well known for his machine learning work with the data science community and with HireVue. With the community, Taylor enjoys posting opinions on jobs and tutorials on ML methods. He also enjoys speaking and presenting to all types of audiences. For HireVue, Taylor joined them as their first data scientist and was able to partner with engineering to build out one of the first video interview prediction engines called HireVue Insights. Since starting there, Taylor was able to help build out a data science team and that went “boldly go where no man has gone before”. That product has been out for the past two years and has seen fantastic use cases and growth where large Fortune companies are dramatically reducing time to hire from 6 weeks to 6 days. Taylor is currently working on and managing a passion project where he combines the power of genetic programming with deep learning to automate network design.
