Join your friends and colleagues at our Monday Plenary.
In recognition of our “125 Years at the Heart of Engineering Education” anniversary celebration, an acting troupe will offer a dramatic representation of ASEE through the years. The troupe is directed by Jeffrey Steiger, known for his unique theatrical presentations of academe-themed issues.
Pierre Haren is a graduate of Ecole Polytechnique in France, and holds a M.S. and Ph.D. from MIT. After leading a research team at INRIA on design of expert systems in the 1980s, he created ILOG in 1987, took it public on NASDAQ in 1997, and sold it to IBM in 2008. After integrating ILOG into IBM, Haren joined GBS, the consulting arm of IBM, where he spent two years as VP, Advanced Analytics and Cognitive, before creating Causality Link.
Throughout his career, Pierre has led and mentored diverse teams of researchers and consultants. He has introduced on the market and deployed at customer sites a variety of products, from Expert Systems to Advanced Graphical User Interfaces and Operations Research, as well as IBM's Watson technologies.
He is passionate about Explicit Artificial Intelligence, at the convergence of knowledge engineering and advanced software, where knowledge representations can be understood by experts and leveraged by computers. He cannot wait to show you how the Causality Link team embodies these concepts in finance.
