Ted Willich, CEO of the data modeling solutions company NLP Logix, is excited about the rapid growth of the industry and said his company’s IT Dream Team has led it to accomplish big goals over the past year.
While the majority of the industry is based in Silicon Valley and Boston, Willich said NLP Logix assembled a team to deliver the power of predictive modeling and machine learning to the Southeast and strives to bring attention to the market so that it can stand toe-to-toe with the best in the world.
In an international data science competition, the NLP Logix IT team placed 13th out of 821 teams from across the world, while being the highest-placing team from the United States. Willich says that was the team’s biggest accomplishment over the past year.
He hopes that, while experiencing rapid growth, the company will continue to serve its customer base and help put Jacksonville on the map. “Along with other great tech companies in town, we want Jacksonville to be known as a center of excellence for machine learning and predictive modeling,” Willich said.
