Scott is passionate about improving and replacing expert systems using machine learning techniques (particularly NLP and CV). Do you have an existing business problem that's currently solved using a static expert system, which you'd like to augment, improve, or replace with a more intelligent solution? Scott would love to partner with you on developing that solution!
