Steven Minton  |  President

Dr. Steven Minton launched InferLink in 2010. Prior to that, he co-founded Fetch Technologies in 2000, where his positions included serving as CTO, CEO and Chairman.

He was responsible for developing and commercializing Fetch’s core technology. Working with Robert Landes, his successor as CEO, he put together a team that ultimately delivered software and services to some of the nation’s largest enterprises. Fetch was acquired in late 2011.

Dr. Minton received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University in 1988. After graduating from CMU, he became a Principal Investigator at NASA’s Ames Research Center, and subsequently a Research Associate Professor at the University of Southern California’s Information Sciences Institute.

Dr. Minton has been recognized internationally for his contributions to Artificial Intelligence, and in 1998 was selected to be a fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). He was recently presented with AAAI’s 2012 Englemore award for his contributions to AI research and applications, and leadership in the field. His previous awards include the 2008 AAAI Classic Paper award and the 1988 Best Paper award at the National AI conference. 

In additional to founding InferLink and Fetch, Dr. Minton also founded a non-profit organization, AI Access Foundation, the publisher of the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR), currently one of the highest-impact journals in computer science. Minton served as the first executive editor of JAIR, and continues to participate as a Managing Editor and as the Director of AI Access Foundation. He has also served as an editor of the Machine Learning Journal, and as an advisor to the Journal of Machine Learning Research (JMLR), the Computing Research Repository, and various high-tech companies. He has taught courses in AI and Machine Learning at several universities, including Stanford and Berkeley.



Greg Barish  |  Chief Technology Officer

Greg Barish leads all technical efforts at InferLink. Previously, he was Chief Architect at Fetch Technologies, and has also held engineering positions at Oracle and Healtheon/WebMD.  

He is currently interested in the challenges of situational awareness in large scale systems, including the need to cope with the ongoing production of raw data from multiple sources, while focusing on the subsets of interest.  Solutions for this require combining techniques for information extraction and enrichment, intelligent data integration, recommender systems, scalable analytical processing, and monitoring.  Greg is currently exploring these challenges through the domains of cybersecurity and digital health.

Greg received a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Southern California, where he developed information gathering techniques based on speculative, dataflow-style execution.  He designed algorithms for automatically incorporating speculative execution into query plan execution, leveraging a hybrid of machine learning techniques for efficient and accurate value prediction.   Greg has published technical papers on these subjects in several AI conferences and journals.

Naveen Ashish | Chief Data Science Officer

Naveen Ashish heads data sciences at InferLink, with a mission to bringing state-of-the-art data science solutions to real world applications. Previously, Dr. Ashish was founding director of (biomedical) data sciences at a major cancer research center, where he founded and built its first data sciences group.

Dr. Ashish is an expert in the development and application of AI techniques such as machine/deep learning, natural language processing, and semantics. He is a pioneer in biomedical data science having held founding and key roles at clinical translational science centers and many key biomedical research initiatives (such ‘BIRN’, ‘GAAIN’, ‘BD2K’ and others). He has authored over a hundred technical research papers at top conferences and journals, and has written two books. He has also advised many companies in health informatics and text analytics.

Dr. Ashish started his career as an R&D computer scientist at NASA Ames and then went on to UC Irvine and later USC as a faculty member in biomedical informatics. Dr. Ashish received his PhD in Computer Science from USC.
