Dr. Bauer heads research and product development in Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning at BOSS AI, which uses AI to provide context for data.
As a computer science professional, Dr. Bauer has dedicated his efforts to solving hard problems using Distributed Computing. He has pioneered codes that have executed on 2 million CPUs, and developed the first Cloud and Big Data platform Certified & Accredited for use in the entirety of the Federal Government (way back in 2009).
Among some of the major challenges he has tackled include applying machine learning to Synthetic Biology to create Chemical Warfare sensors; developing the first MULTI-INT data fusion platform using Big Data and Ai for the U.S. Intelligence Community; developing the first distributed computing platform to demonstrate super-linear scalability up to 2 million CPUs at Lawrence Livermore; and developing the first report for the GAO and DHS National Communications System that combined analysis of the effects of pandemic influenza on Internet communications, the US Economy and Banking System, and Financial Markets. Dr. Bauer was a leader in developing areas for study in Exa-scale computing at DARPA and has worked on several unique problems in the IC that have worked to keep the United States free from those that would harm us.
Dr. Bauer is the most excited when presented with an impossible problem to solve. No problem is impossible or intractable! Trained in distributed systems, he feels there are very few problems that cannot be solved leveraging large-scale technologies including Big Data, Cloud Computing, Virtualization, and of course, Parallel Programming. Distributed computing will continue to digitally transform our world and I hope to continue contributing to that process for as long as possible.
Dr. Bauer has been programming since 1982 when he received my first Vic20, and his first love in this area is crafting solution architectures that solve (or approximate) solutions for impossible problems.
