Dr Andy Hock is VP of Product at Cerebras. Andy came to Cerebras from Google, where he led Data and Analytics Product for the Terra Bella project, using deep learning and AI to create useful data for maps and enterprise applications from satellite imagery. Computation was a challenging constraint for this work; in Cerebras, Andy saw an opportunity to help deliver the right compute solution to accelerate deep learning and AI research by orders of magnitude and advance the field. Before Google, Andy was a Senior Scientist and Senior Technical Program Manager at Arete Associates, where he led research for signal processing algorithm development. He has a PhD in Geophysics and Space Physics from UCLA and a BA in Astronomy-Physics and Molecular Biology from Colgate University.
