I want to change the world.
Gurjeet Singh is a co-founder of Ayasdi, has a Bachelor’s degree from Delhi University, and a Master’s and Ph.D. degree in Computational Mathematics from Stanford University. Gurjeet first met Gunnar Carlsson at Stanford during his Ph.D. and this led to Gurjeet’s graduate work and thesis on the theory, algorithms and applications of Topological Data Analysis (TDA), as well as, Gurjeet’s participation on Gunnar’s DARPA funded research project to study how topology can be applied to solve real world problems. During this time, Gurjeet designed and developed various TDA algorithms to bring out the shape and meaning of data. This led to the creation of Ayasdi’s core technology and machine-learning algorithms. Gurjeet has published academic papers in top mathematics journals and computer science conferences, previously worked at Google and Texas Instruments. He lives in Palo Alto with his wife and son, and develops multi-legged robots in his spare time.
