John-Mark Agosta
Principal Data Scientist, Microsoft

John Mark Agosta leads a team that is expanding the machine learning and artificial intelligence capabilities of Microsoft Azure. He recently joined Microsoft, which if he were smarter, he should have done earlier in his career — a career that involved working with startups and labs in the Bay Area, in such areas as “The Connected Car 2025” at Toyota ITC, sales opportunity scoring at Inside Sales, malware detection at Intel, and automated planning at SRI. At Intel Labs, he was awarded a Santa Fe Institute Business Fellowship in 2007. He has over 30 peer-reviewed publications and 6 accepted patents. His dedication to probability and its applications is shown by his participation in the annual Uncertainty in AI conference since its inception in 1985. When feeling low he recharges his spirits by singing Russian music with Slavyanka, the Bay Area’s Slavic music chorus.
