Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a disrupting technology that combines a high potential payoff with a very challenging implementation. Many AI projects are over-sold and under-deliver, but Piero has spent 40 years developing and delivering AI successfully.
Piero specializes in machine learning (ML), covering AI project definition, risk abatement, project evaluation and transitioning from development to deployment. He’s advised Parkland, Stanley, Black and Decker, Baker Hughes and Schlumberger—playing a key role in their Digital Transformations. A former Chief Scientist at GE for 34 years, he’s led a variety of projects in analytics, ML and Industrial AI, ranging from healthcare to aviation, aerospace, consumer electronics, and insurance.
Piero has a PhD from UC Berkeley in Control and AI Applications. He’s a Life Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, the International Fuzzy Systems Association, and was a Coolidge Fellow at GE Global Research. He served as Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning for 13 years. He’s on the editorial board of five technical journals and is Editor at Large of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine. He’s co-edited six books, has over 150 publications and lives in San Diego.
