Shy Palachy-Affek, a Full-Stack Data Science Consultant 🦌

My Personal Website Medium LinkedIn Twitter

Hey there! I'm Shy. I live, code and consult on data science in Tel Aviv, Israel. Among my current and past clients are such companies as Voyantis, BigPanda, Forter, Intezer, Bringg, Bank Hapoalim and quite a few others. I also serve as VP Data Science @ LeO, and I've headed the data science outfit at a couple of startups before striking out on my own. 🙂

I have co-founded and manage DataHack, a non-profit / community / yearly hackathon dedicated to promoting data science and machine learning in Israel, which also runs projects such as DataTalks, DataNights and Kaggle-IL. I have also founded NLPH, a community meant to encourage and enable joint work on open NLP tools for Hebrew.
