GradeSlam adds ex-Google machine learning expert


GradeSlam today announced it has added ex-Google machine learning engineer and “education leader” Luis Serrano to its advisory board.

Serano is curriculum lead at the Artificial Intelligence Team at Udacity and previously served as a software engineer at Google (YouTube). He earned his PhD in Mathematics at Michigan. Serrano will work closely with the GradeSlam Labs department as they use data science and artificial intelligence to truly personalize the learning experience for students.

“As we continue to grow, it has become clear that we need to bring in top minds to the Labs department,” said GradeSlam cofounder Roberto Cipriani. “Luis’ passion for education, coupled with his elite experience made the decision very easy – we are very excited to have him contribute to the profound work being done by GradeSlam Labs. ”

Serrano first gained notoriety as one of the engineers credited with developing YouTube’s recommendation algorithm.

“I am tremendously excited to join the GradeSlam family as an advisor. This is a very exciting time to be alive, as it is the first time that we have the technology to bring knowledge and quality education to every human being,” said Serrano. “GradeSlam is an amazing company which pushes the limits on bringing quality education to more people who need it.”

Serrano joins the Montreal-based company’s Bay Area team that already boasts former TenMarks CEO Ivan Koon.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my
    apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
