Robert Fox moved to Charlotte 23 years ago as a consultant with IBM.  Since then he has had a long (20-year!) professional career in the financial services sector (working for various banks), where he analyzed information as well as developed and managed data science teams and solutions.  He maintains a strong link to the industry; and tries to stay on top of the business use cases that drive value from information.  Robert loves the field that we now call Data Science--and is unreasonably passionate about transforming data into knowledge.  He maintains his technical depth by coding, querying, analyzing, and building things on a regular basis.  His technical interests include cloud computing, data visualization, data mining, unsupervised learning, full-stack web development, and the integration and automation of machine learning.  He's an expert on the pitfalls involved in efforts to drive value with AI; and focuses on staying current with innovation in risk management, governance, and "explainability" in data science.
