Mike Bowles
Machine Learning Instructor and Founder, Biomatica


Dr Mike Bowle’s career is one of the most extraordinary in Silicon Valley. Mike’s career started out in research, as an assistant professor at MIT. He went on to found and run two companies, both of which went on to huge IPOs: First was Com21, an early pioneer in developing cable modem networks, which Mike led to a successful NASDAQ IPO at a $300m valuation. He then went on to create IBeam Broadcasting, a video distribution network, which after just 2.5 years he led to a $3b IPO. More recently he has been active as co-founder and instructor for the series of data mining courses run at Hacker Dojo. These courses are nearly always sold out, and have received great feedback from participants.
