Short Bio

I am Andy Petrella, an entrepreneur with a Mathematics and Distributed Data background focused on unleashing unexploited business potentials leveraging new technologies in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and cognitive systems.

I am having fun being involved in the data community, first, as an early evangelist of Apache Spark (2011-), then with the Spark Notebook (2013-), and as public speaker at various events (Spark Summit, Strata, Big Data Spain).

Also, I enjoy being an O'Reilly author and trainer on subjects like Distributed Data Science, Data Lineage Essentials, Data Governance, and Machine Learning Model Monitoring.

Last but not least, I am cofounder and CEO of Kensu, bringing the Data Intelligence Management (DIM) Platform for data-driven companies to leverage AI sustainably, with Analytics Observability capability coupled to a Data Usage Catalog. Although the Kensu Platform is proprietary, you can find our open source projects on this repo.
