Abram completed his engineering honors in advanced intelligent systems at the University of Pretoria. He finds the world of machine learning both fascinating and challenging as cloud computing, big data and productionisation add complexity to an already very deeply scientific and philosophical field. He spent the previous leg of his career in consulting engineering and full stack enterprise software development and relishes the chance to apply those lessons to his true passion – intelligent systems. Abram is married to his beautiful veterinarian wife Ebeneze who is also a local musician. He spends his free time trying to conjure up open source projects and struggling to keep up with teenagers in competitive gaming. Abram believes his greatest talent is augmenting and motivating those around him and relishes that chance to be your soundboard in exchange for coffee.
