I am a member of the DeepQA Systems Team working on the Watson project also known as the IBM Jeopardy! Grand Challenge. I designed and developed UIMA AS, the key infrastructure component for scaling out DeepQA technology to meet Jeopardy latency requirements. It allows Watson to scale its analytical computations across thousands of compute cores.
My interests are in distributed and fault-tolerant systems, investigate middleware architectures, and general software develepment using java.
I am an Apache Open Source Comitter for UIMA project.
