Bio:

Ivo Georgiev is a computer-systems engineer, an adjunct professor in computer engineering and a technology entrepreneur. He holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University and a Ph.D. in computer science from the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.

He spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow in the Computational Bioscience Program at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. He is an avid learner and has been taking online courses since their inception, in various subjects such as Computational Neuroscience, Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, among others.

He has worked for half a dozen information-technology startups in Silicon Valley and Eastern Europe, starting as a systems analyst and progressing to chief technology officer. He has been teaching college-level computer-systems courses at CU Boulder, CU Denver and MSU Denver for 10 years. His first startup, TeraFold Biologics, was focused on computational discovery and preclinical validation of alternative protein scaffolds for drug delivery to brain tumors. His current startup, Marsian School, is creating artificial-intelligence agents for personalized domain-agnostic learning assistance.

Georgiev is working on dedicating his career to contributing to three broad domains: natural and artificial intelligence; long-term sustainable ecosystems; and the human colonization of the solar system. He loves the outdoors, the elements and traveling. He runs, swims, skis, climbs, bikes or sails on a daily basis. He has visited 45 countries. He speaks Bulgarian and English fluently, can get by in French, Spanish and Russian, and knows enough Chinese to surprise the guests at parties.

Bio:

B.S.E.E., Georgia Tech; M.S.Ae.E., USAF Institute of Technology; Affiliate Professor of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Technology.

Ralph N. Jones received a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree from Georgia Tech in 1962 and a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering degree from the U. S. Air Force Institute of Technology at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in 1964. He served four years as an Air Force officer at what is now called the National Aerospace Intelligence Center (NAIC), analyzing foreign weapon systems and estimating their capabilities.

His expertise as a civilian includes time in Huntington Beach, California where he worked on projects such as McDonnell-Douglas Astronautics’ Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL). In Denver years of expertise come from the time employed Hughes Aircraft and Raytheon at Buckley Air Force Base tracking satellites, processing downloaded satellite data, and performing control, operation and failure analysis of space-qualified hardware.

As a technical writer he has written documents on projects involving command/control and signal processing systems, and user manuals for a publisher of civil engineering and animation software.

As an Affiliate Professor of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technology at MSU Denver he brings these years of expertise in the aerospace industry into the classroom
