President & CEO, @RISK Technologies, Inc.
In his personal quest to create automated insight for combating the global war on terror, Mr. O’Brien worked to leverage IBM’s machine learning technology to help the DOD take advantage of the opportunities presented by adversary actions and decisions. After leaving IBM to start YaData Solutions, he and his cofounders realized the power of what happens when machine learning systems in one organization or system is able to interact with lots of of other machine learning systems. Since then, his team’s goal is to create systems that will learn from one another. While supporting the United States Special Operations Community, Global Combatant Commands, the USMC, the US Army, and other strategic intelligence organizations, YaData went beyond the concept of data sharing and correlation. The Company delivered analytic platforms that integrated human lessons learned from complex combat operations. After selling the Company, Sean and his teams vision expanded. Today, @RISK Technologies focuses on democratizing analytics. Their charter is to transform conventional Cyber approaches that rely on non-collaborative appliances into delivering Artificial Intelligence Quorums where Network Consensus exploits opportunities created by a cyber adversaries decision making process.
