As the founder and CEO of MapD, Todd is a pioneer in building GPU-tuned analytics and visualization applications for the enterprise. Todd conceived of the idea of using GPUs to accelerate the extraction of insights from large datasets while conducting his Harvard Graduate research on the role of Twitter in the Arab Spring. Frustrated by the capabilities of conventional technologies to allow for the interactive exploration of these multi-million row datasets, Todd built one of the first GPU-based databases.

Upon completion of his studies at Harvard, Todd joined MIT as a research fellow at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, focusing on GPU databases and visualization before founding the company in late 2013. Now? He works with companies like Amazon, Verizon, and Simulmedia to help them spend significantly less time crunching data and more time analyzing it to make key business decisions.
