AI Harmony Book Cover

Hi, 👋 I'm Brad

I'm an MIT and Wharton trained hacker 🏴‍☠️, I love writing code and teaching people about software. Between musings on machine learning and taming tensors, I wrote "AI Harmony" (available on Amazon 📖 and Audible 🎧) to help my clients and students better understand artificial intelligence.

Software Development

I've spent my career as a contract software developer and am a lifetime member of the Association for Computing Machinery. I co-founded and am the former CTO of Inoxoft (formerly Bread Factory Studios) where I led the development of data-driven applications for clients ranging from startups to large companies 🚀. I support the Free Software Foundation and contribute to the free and open source software community through my work at Medusa Intelligence Corporation.

Startups

I invest in startups via Punk Syndicate and sit on the board of NextFab Ventures.

I hold public office hours every Thursday. To request a time to get coffee ☕ have a phone call or video chat you can shoot me an email me at 📧 brad@bradflaugher.com or call me at +1 (866) 898-BRAD.
