Partha Datta Ray, CEO and Founding CTO

Partha Datta Ray

Partha is currently the Principal Investigator of AI Innovation Research grants awarded by NSF and seats in the Expert Review Board for AI projects there. He got his early exposure to AI while working at AT&T Bell Laboratories Research in the 80s and developed AI systems for predicting performance of large-scale network systems operated by AT&T and optimizing their operations.

With a strong conviction that a sophisticated AI framework for solving problems arising in a complex social or technical systems will need a combination of data driven statistical modeling, along with other approaches such as knowledge models, formal reasoning systems, computational graphs for structural modeling, Partha founded Albeado with the goal of making such combined models not only deliver practical machine learning but also provide model interpretability. Business leaders and systems operators managing such systems will need to understand the issues facing the systems dynamics and the underlying reasons for those changes so that they can provide the needed mitigation. Without systems and performance explainability, such users will not be able to trust and effectively use resulting predictions to make decisions and control their outcome.

In the past 30+ years he has also directed corporate labs and business units in areas of ASIC design and EDA Software. Many of the prior startups he has been involved with were acquired by Mentor Graphics, Agere (now part of Intel), L&T InfoTech and Dow Jones. He has eight granted and pending patents, has chaired technical working groups and standardization committees for IEEE and was also invited keynote speakers. Partha holds a MSEE&CS from Rutgers and has conducted advanced academic and industrial research work at leading institutes.
