Ben Taylor

Chief Data Scientist, HireVue

Ben Taylor has over 11 years of machine learning experience. He has worked for 5 years in the semiconductor industry for Intel and Micron in photolithography, process control, and yield prediction. He has also worked as a Wall Street “quant” building sentiment stock models for a hedge fund trading the S&P 1500. During that time Ben helped build a 600 GPU core computing cluster from the ground up that he used to backtest up to 10M trading scenarios per day. Ben left finance and semiconductor to work for a new HR startup called HireVue as their chief data scientist the fall of 2013. Since joining HireVue Ben has worked to develop the machine learning models and analytics behind digital interviewing. With more than 100,000 times more data than a resume, using audio, and video content, he has shown that performance can be predicted from the interview itself. He has a M.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Utah where he is currently finishing his Ph.D., also in chemical engineering.
