Todd Mostak
Founder and CEO, MapD


Todd Mostak is the founder and CEO of MapD, a pioneer in building GPU-tuned analytics and visualization applications for the enterprise. Previously, Todd was a research fellow at the MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, where he focused on GPU databases and visualization. Todd conceived of the idea of using GPUs to accelerate the extraction of insights from large datasets while conducting graduate research on the role of Twitter in the Arab Spring. Frustrated by the capabilities of conventional technologies to allow for the interactive exploration of these multimillion row datasets, Todd built one of the first GPU-based databases. Todd holds an MA in Middle Eastern studies from Harvard.
