Randall Shane


Dr. Randall Shane is a multifaceted technologist with a PhD in Computer Science and a Graduate Certificate in Data Mining from Stanford University. A U.S. Army Veteran, he has a diverse career that spans roles from CTO to Chief Data Scientist, specializing in analytics, statistics, machine learning, and development for web, mobile, and scientific applications. Early on, he served as an expert witness in computer and computational forensics, focusing on cases involving white-collar crimes and corporate disputes, and worked with various agencies like the SEC, NYSE, and USAO. Transitioning to the startup ecosystem, he gained experience in sectors like gaming, auction, e-commerce, and scientific research, with two successful sales and a startup failure under his belt, which he considers equally instructive. Currently, Dr. Shane develops AI systems for applications and startups, including predictive cybersecurity tools, Natural Language Processing engines, and intelligent OCR systems.
