John Prior

Senior data mining and machine learning consultant with over 15 years experience in the research and development of predictive analytics and data-mining applications, in both development and leadership roles.

I have worked together with a highly diverse group of companies, from small startup companies to large investment banks, on successful projects ranging from ad targeting, web site optimization, fraud detection, financial prediction and object-oriented database development to large-scale simulation, chemical process control, and speech recognition. I have conducted research for both the DOD and the DOE at Los Alamos National Laboratory, and frequently perform research in my spare time (for example, in 2007, I achieved a Netflix Prize ranking of 230 out of 25,000+ competitors).
