numerical has been around since 2015. Ranko and Shaoyi founded numericcal to realize their vision of AI driven enterprise and industrial operations. They built numericcal around the idea that AI is best used for augmentation of human decision making. Our systems actively learn and adjust from interactions with their human operators. They become trusted sidekicks and your allies that perform tedious tasks so humans can focus on making the right decisions after being able to consider all the data.
What Motivates Us
We look to solve complex problems that have not been tackled before due to the inability of current AI solutions to effectively process immense amounts of geographically distributed data. With numericcal’s algorithms and unique focus on edge deployment, we strive to improve the human working conditions while at the same time optimizing business operational efficiency through the power of AI.
Ranko previously worked on hardware and software accelerators for computationally intensive numerical algorithms in control systems and deep learning. Ranko holds a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Belgrade, and a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT. He was also a post-doctoral researcher at UC Berkeley and a Principal Investigator on DARPA and NSF projects.
Shaoyi spent most of his career working on accelerating compute intensive applications, leveraging platforms ranging from super computers to embedded FPGAs. He previously worked as a software engineer for Altera (now part of Intel) and Xilinx. Shaoyi holds a Bachelor’s degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Toronto, and a PhD in computer science from UC Berkeley.
Djordje’s previous experiences include corporate and new business development in the chemicals industry (at Linde and Messer), as well as licensing and technology commercialization and strategy development in oil & gas at Shell. Djordje holds a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Tulane University and a PhD in chemical engineering from Princeton University.
