Steven Minton  |  President

Dr. Minton, the President and founder of InferLink, 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. He left USC to co-found Fetch Technologies in 2000, where he put together a team that delivered software and services to some of the nation’s largest enterprises. Fetch was acquired in late 2011.

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 both 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, Fetch and several other AI companies, 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, where he designed and taught the machine learning course (CS229) the first two years it was offered.
