Arno Candel is the Chief Technology Officer at H2O.ai—a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant. He is the main committer of H2O-3 and Driverless AI and has been designing and implementing high-performance machine-learning algorithms since 2012.

Arno holds a PhD and Masters summa cum laude in Physics from ETH Zurich, Switzerland. He was named “2014 Big Data All-Star” by Fortune Magazine and featured by ETH GLOBE in 2015.

Dr. Candel has over a decade of experience in HPC with C++/MPI and had access to the world’s largest supercomputers as a Staff Scientist at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory where he participated in US DOE scientific computing initiatives. While at SLAC, he authored the first curvilinear finite-element simulation code for space-charge dominated relativistic free electrons and scaled it to thousands of compute nodes. He also led a collaboration with CERN to model the electromagnetic performance of CLIC, a ginormous e+e- collider and potential successor of LHC. Arno has authored dozens of scientific papers and was a sought-after academic conference speaker.

About the Series

As part of the Asian Institute of Management's PhD in Data Science program kick-off, we are organizing a webinar series titled The Science of Data where we have invited leading scientists and rising stars in the fields of Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Network Science, and Complex Systems.

Our main goal in this series is to spread knowledge and awareness of the rich field of data-driven and empirical science, and to inspire future scientists and young researchers in this part of the world to further invest their time in advancing science through R&D.

The series will run from October through December 2020.
