Joshua Alspector, PhD

Dr. Alspector received the PhD in Physics from MIT. He spent much of his career at Bell Labs and Bellcore (now Telcordia) where he invented the world’s first neural network learning microchip and managed a research team. He then held an endowed professorship in ECE at University of ColoradoColorado Springs where he founded Personalogy, a company which used machine learning techniques to personalize content and target advertising. The core technology was also used to filter spam emails which led AOL to acquire the company. The very successful adaptive anti-spam filters in the AOL email service use this technology. Josh was instrumental in setting up AOL Labs by specifying areas in which to do R&D and hiring PhD-level scientists in India and China. As Chief Scientist he led a research team that created technology to personalize content on the AOL service, target advertising, and perform semantic analysis for eliciting user interests and finding related content. After leaving AOL, he joined the Defense Advanced Projects Agency as a program manager. At DARPA, he initiated and managed research programs and studies in machine learning and distributed information systems at leading universities and companies for the US Department of Defense.
