From PM to CEO and Grammarly for Coders


The lecture focuses on the application of PM experiences & tools in inventing, founding, and developing, the first AI for software code that can learn from billions of lines of code and extract the knowledge of the global development community. Named, ‘Grammarly for Coders’, it enables AI-based detection of security and reliability code issues. DeepCode is an excellent example of a modern AI system that can learn from data, software code in this case, yet remain transparent and interpretable for humans (AKA Symbolic AI).

About the Speaker:

speaker1 boris

Boris Paskalev, Head of Product, AI Code Analysis at Snyk, knows it all about being a PM and managing projects: manufacturing, software, R&D, new products, an AI-driven start-up… After acquiring a computer science master’s degree at MIT in 2003, he went on to work at various financial and tech companies (Putnam Investments, OPNET, Deutsche Bank) before establishing a successful 15-year career at Vistaprint, the largest online supplier of physical and digital marketing products for small and micro-businesses. In 2017, Boris co-founded in Zurich and led it from an ETH spin-off to being acquired by Snyk, a security-focused company that reached a $4.7B valuation just 6 months after the merger.
