Short Bio:

I am a Tech entrepreneur with practical background in applied math, software engineering, and business administration.

As a software engineer in 2002 I “decoded” ICQ and developed the first instant messaging app for mobile phone known as IM+ (50 mln. users), created several complex systems (C++, Java), etc.

From 2008 I am a technology entrepreneur in Computer Vision / Augmented Reality and Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence fields.
I invested in several projects related to Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence.

I am CEO and founder of Augmented Pixels(Palo Alto, USA), the company that was established in 2010 and which in 2016 was included in Top-10 Computer Vision Leaders for Augmented Reality and Robotics by VentureBeat.

In 2016 I was honored to be a mentor and a judge at NASA(USA) Space Race project (link) and was also asked to report in front of the board of directors of National Academy of Sciences (USA) about the long-term impact of Artificial Intelligence in several industries(link).

I am also the organizer of the Eastern European Conference on Computer Vision (#EECVC).

In my free time I share my ideas in a blog http://vactivity.com
