Wellio with Sivan Aldor-Noiman and Erik Andrejko
In our last (but not least!) interview from NEXT, Mark and Melanie talked with Sivan Aldor-Noiman and Erik Andrejko about Wellio, an awesome new platform that combines AI and healthy eating. Wellio was developed as a way to not only educate users on the importance of proper nutrition for well-being but to give them their own personal nutritionist.The data scientists at Wellio started from scratch (pun intended) to create their own food-related database and then began training models so the data could be organized and personalized. Using a combination of human power and machine learning techniques, Wellio learns your preferences, allergies, diets, etc. and will make healthy decisions for you based on these key facts. It chooses recipes, populates a grocery list, and even has the ingredients delivered to your door in time for dinner!Sivan Aldor-NoimanSivan heads Data Science for Wellio, an early stage startup in the FoodTech space that is helping people eat better. In Wellio, her team delivers models that help inspire, empower and adapt to people’s eating needs, cooking abilities and health constraints. She began her career in the Israeli military serving as an instructor for an anti-tank missile unit (please don’t think Rambo, think more like a classroom teacher). Sivan then transitioned to school and received her undergraduate degree in Industrial Engineering and a Master in Statistics from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. She moved to the U.S. to complete a Ph.D. degree in Statistics from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. In her previous job, Sivan ended up leading several Data Science teams and learned that she really liked leading technical people since she got to learn a lot from them. Ultimately, she missed the smaller company mentality, so she is back in the startup world.Sivan was once asked to define herself so here goes: “I am an enthusiastic disagreeable giver and a constant empirical driven learner”.Erik AndrejkoErik has spent his career making a positive impact on the world through mathematics. He is a co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Wellio - an early stage startup applying AI to the intersection of food and human health. Previously, Erik lead the data science and research organization at The Climate Corporation, which applies data science to solve challenging problems in numerous domains including climatology, agronomic modeling and geospatial applications.When not analyzing interesting datasets, Erik can often be found riding up some incline on a bicycle or cooking.Cool things of the weekSummary of Google Cloud Next Tokyo siteDeep Learning Indaba GCP Credit Awards siteData Studio and Dataprep are now generally available blogDS: BI analyze more than 500 other data sources via more than 100 partner-built connectors and used by over a million people globallyDP: new look, team collab and more analytics features blogAnnouncing general availability of Cloud Memorystore for Redis blogCoursera Advanced Machine Learning with TensorFlow with GCP blogWebinar on October 9th at 9AM PST to learn moreSimplifying ML predictions with Google Cloud Functions blog50 Best Cloud Security Podcasts siteGCP Podcast Episode #100: Vint Cerf: past, present, and future of the internet podcastInterviewWellio siteGKE siteCloud Storage sitePub/Sub siteCloud Composer siteCloud ML Engine siteStackdriver siteCloud Functions siteTensorFlow siteKeras siteScikit Learn siteCloud TPU siteCloud AutoML siteCloud Vision siteDevOps201 for Application Developers videoCloud Firestore siteDay 3 Keynote: Made Here Together videoSpinnaker siteContact Wellio emailQuestions of the weekIs Inbox going away?Inbox is signing off: find your favorite features in the new Gmail blog5 ways the new Gmail can help you get more done blogWhere can you find us next?We’ll both be at Strangeloop.Mark will probably be at Unite L.A. in October.Melanie speaking at Monktoberfest Oct 4th in Portland, Maine.
