Paul Jacobs started his career with nine years with General Electric Corporate R&D, where he excelled as a computer scientist and learned the art of technology transfer. He was the author of over 50 published articles in artificial intelligence and natural language processing while working to create applications with GE businesses such as aircraft engines, aerospace, financial services (now GE Capital), and information services. He is known as a leader in applied artificial intelligence and natural language processing technology, and has served on the executive committee of the Association for Computational Linguistics. During his time with GE, he also served as a principal investigator under the government's Tipster program, which earned a "hammer" award for reinventing government.
Prior to joining GE, Paul earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in applied mathematics from Harvard and his Ph. D. in computer science from the University of California at Berkeley.
An accomplished runner, skier, and endurance athlete who twice won the Golden Gate Marathon and has completed the Hawaii Ironman triathlon, Paul now uses his drive, practical nature and technical expertise to help other companies achieve the kind of success he has enjoyed with technology transfer throughout his career.
