Yigal Goldfine, VP research & Algorithms at PandoLogic. "Nature writes the best algorithms"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yigal Goldfine Bio:
I have the privilege of leading the research and algorithm fields in PandoLogic for the past two years.

I try to solve problems and crack puzzles on a daily basis... Before focusing on algorithms I was a programmer, team leader and R&D director for several years.

I have a BSc in computer science, and also BSc in biotechnology engineering which sometimes gives me the opportunity to approach some of the challenges from a different angle.

About Nature writes the best algorithms:
--------------------------------------------------------

We were struggling with a very challenging problem - and every path we took lead us to a dead end...

We then chose a new technique - Biomimicry. During this session, I will present the concept of Biomimicry algorithms –

biological processes are inherently algorithms that nature has designed to solve computational problems.

I will also demonstrate some of the concepts of treating job postings as a flock of birds.

By the end of the session, you will have a new perspective on nature and potentially a new tool in your problem-solving kit.
