Machine Learning Firm Joins with Duke University to Help Entrepreneurs
Infinia ML, an advanced machine learning company based in Durham, NC that delivers automation solutions and predictive analytics to enterprise businesses, has partnered with Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering to integrate machine learning into the school’s entrepreneurial instruction.
Starting in the 2018-19 school year, engineering students at the Durham, NC-based university will attend lectures on machine learning from Infinia ML leaders including CEO Robbie Allen and Executive Chairman Mike Salvino. In addition, Infinia ML will work with Duke start-ups to implement machine learning in their businesses. Infinia ML’s endeavors will support the work of Steve McClelland, Duke Engineering’s entrepreneur in residence leading undergraduate entrepreneurship efforts.
“Machine learning is an evolving and important tool that’s changing how businesses approach and solve problems,” says McClelland.
“Understanding its strengths, limitations, and opportunities helps entrepreneurs deliver unique solutions, value, and services to customers. Duke students will benefit from access to Infinia ML’s experience in applying these tools to solve real-world problems.”
With this partnership, supported by a $25,000 contribution from Infinia ML, the company builds on its significant Duke University connections. The company is a spin-out from the machine learning lab of Lawrence Carin, Ph.D., professor of electrical and computer engineering, and vice provost for research at Duke.
Other Duke University Blue Devils on the Infinia ML team include Ricardo Henao, assistant professor, Hongteng Xu, visiting faculty member, Ya Xue, Ph.D. graduate, and Ikenna Odinaka, postdoctoral associate.
“Machine learning is driving business value across a wide variety of industries and use cases, but we believe the most exciting applications are yet to come,” says Allen. “We’re excited to help the next generation of Duke entrepreneurs build the next generation of machine learning solutions, products and businesses.”
“The opportunities this partnership will provide dovetail perfectly with our strategy to increase student interactions with industry practitioners so they’re well-exposed to real-world situations and problems while at Duke Engineering,” notes Ravi Bellamkonda, the Vinik Dean of the Pratt School of Engineering.
