Dave Copps

Brainspace Corp.
Founder & CEO
I am a technologist focused on the role that Machine Learning and AI will play in transforming markets and the world. For the past 15 years I have founded, launched and sold three companies focused on machine learning and artificial intelligence.

I currently serve as founder and CEO of Brainspace Corporation, a Cyxtera Business, a global leader in Investigative Analytics and Cyber Security. Joining Cyxtera has not only accelerated the development of our analytics platform, but created new possibilities around cyber security and predictive analytics. We are playing a lead role in the area of augmenting human intelligence using data visualization to connect people more intimately with AI and radically alter their ability to surface important patterns and insights in data. Prior to Brainspace, I co-founded founded and led Engenium Corporation (purchased by Marsh McLennan) where I led the adoption of the company’s semantic search platform. Over the years, my companies have placed machine learning and AI in thousands of organizations, including all major consultancies and intelligence agencies, around the globe.

I received his BA from the University of North Texas in Industrial Anthropology / Corporate Culture. I'm an invited member of the Aspen Institute’s Roundtable on AI this year and a frequent speaker at MIT’s EmTech conferences and other events centered around machine learning, AI, Augmented Intelligence and disruptive technology. I'm an active mentor and investor in startup companies and lecture at startup hubs like Tech Wildcatters, Dallas Entrepreneurs Center (The DEC) and Startup Grind.

When I am not being a geek I enjoy collecting custom guitars, brewing craft beer, ocean sailing and spending family and friend time at our home away from home on the island of Bequia.
