Dat Tran

Head of AI

Axel Springer AI

Hey, I am Dat and the Head of AI at Axel Springer Ideas Engineering ( https://axelspringerideas.de/ ), the innovation unit of Axel Springer SE which is the largest digital publishing house in Europe. I establish and lead Axel Springer AI where my goal is to make AI more accessible within Axel Springer and hence drive innovations within the group. My ultimate plan is to turn Axel Springer into an AI first company.

My research interests are diverse; from traditional machine learning to deep learning. Previously, I’ve worked for idealo.de, Pivotal Labs and Accenture, and have been a regular speaker at several renowned conferences. I further enjoy blogging about my work on Medium. I received my MSc in Economics from Humboldt University of Berlin with a background in Operations Research and Econometrics.

I want to be a mentor so that I can give something back to the community. I had great mentors in my past and doing this will give me a chance to do the same for the future tech rock stars of tomorrow :) I can support you in the following fields: machine learning, deep learning, data science, big data, distributed computing, leadership, tdd, agile practices, lean startup, and software engineering practices.
