Alexy Khrabrov

Chief Scientist

Alexy Khrabrov (Ph.D., Computer Science, University of Pennsylvania ) is

a computer scientist working at the intersection of startups, “big"

data, and functional programming.  He builds and supports communities of

technologists creating value and having fun at this magical center of

the Venn diagram.  Alexy is the first Chief Scientist at Nitro, bringing

data mining, NLP, Scala and Apache Spark technologies together to drive

the vision of Smart Documents.  Alexy’s previous roles included the

first Director of Analytics at Clinkle, the first engineering co-founder

of Versal, an education technology startup, a senior research engineer

at Amazon and Klout, and a research scientist at Thayer School of

Engineering at Dartmouth and NEC Research Institute in Princeton.


Alexy likes to share the fun and learning with others, so he founded the

Scala for Startups meetup and organizes its successor SF Scala

(sfscala.org), the largest Scala meetup in the world, as well as SF

Spark and Friends (sfspark.org), SF Text (sftext.org), an applied NLP

meetup, and Reactive.Community, a meetup around the best practices for

building scalable systems.  Alexy founded and runs the SF Scala yearly

conference, called Scala By the Bay (scala.bythebay.io), and organizes

Data By the Bay — a sequence of new conferences on applied Natural

Language Processing (text.bythebay.io), Big Data Pipelines

(bigdatascala.bythebay.io), Data for Democracy (d4d.io), AI and IoT

(aiot.io), and Life Sciences By the Bay (life.bythebay.io).  Whenever

they can, Alexy, his wife, and their four kids go to enjoy the great

nature of the West.
