Elias Mistler

efficient, dynamic, creative

I am a dynamic, young individual with a passion for Machine Learning, Analytics and Software Development.

Creativity, a quick grasp and my hands-on attitude have helped me in maintaining a top-of-class status throughout my education, to receive an accelerated promotion in my role as a Business Intelligence Consultant, and successfully go through the transformation of becoming a Data Scientist.

I'm currently member and co-owner of Previse, a start-up concerned with using Artifical Intelligence to make sure that SMEs supplying large corporates can get paid instantly, instead of waiting months for their money.
I frequently engage with the Scottish Data Science community and share what I learn in my incredibly exciting and multi-faceted role: I recently spoke at the Scotland Data Science & Technology Meetup at the DataLab, at the Glasgow University FinTech Society and ScotML (as announced in The Scotsman, and I represented Previse at the Data Fest 2018.
