IoT Agenda

Max Kanter is co-founder and CEO of Feature Labs, where he leads a team building software that makes machine learning easier to use. As a graduate student in computer science at MIT, Kanter studied artificial intelligence and machine learning, ultimately creating the deep feature synthesis algorithm with Feature Labs co-founder Kalyan Veeramachaneni. That work became the foundation for Feature Labs, which now helps organizations including NASA, Kohl's and SAP by automating feature engineering and removing bottlenecks from the data science process. Prior to Feature Labs, Kanter held engineering roles at Twitter, The New York Times and Fitbit.
