The Compellon Backstory

By | April 19th, 2016|

Long before founding Compellon and prior to immigrating to the US, I built advanced statistical analysis systems for companies both as a professor and a researcher in the Soviet Academy of Sciences. The most intriguing part of my work was the investigation of projects which all pursued reasonable objectives, had sufficient funding, were well equipped, and were conducted by a team of highly qualified specialists…and in spite of all this—failed. I saw such examples across many fields: manufacturing, environmental monitoring, medical diagnostics, acoustical testing of materials, and others. Figuratively speaking, my job in such projects was “autopsy” and “resurrection”. Overall, the main culprit in the overwhelming majority of cases was the use of inadequate assumptions based on well-established beliefs.
