Technology is the driving force behind economic and social change. There is more to a successful technology than building a product. We believe that making technology is a venture to understand the world. This is precisely what motivated us to create Erdos Technologies, and we strive to integrate this approach in our work: we treat every project as an opportunity to understand a piece of the world - through the people it involves, their motivations, and the interactions between makers and users.
We place a high value on pursuing things of interest for their complexity and challenge. We are inquisitive and eager to discover the optimum solution for your biggest problems. We ask a lot of questions and are open to new ideas; processing them rationally, but with an open mind.
We believe in adhering to the highest moral and ethical principles. This means consistent and transparent communication internally and with you. Our relationship with you is dependent on the integrity of our actions.
We believe that achieving the best results requires a partnership between our team and yours. The most novel solutions are never discovered in isolation, rather they emerge from the symbiosis of adjacent ideas and new ways of thinking. Collaboration stands at the core of our identity.
Prior to founding Erdos Technologies, Dan worked as an Investment Consultant and as Data Management consultant in New York.
Dan graduated from Columbia University in New York, Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa, where he studied Intellectual History, Philosophy, and Mathematics. He was the recipient of the Columbia University Lily Prize for his thesis, “The Reconstruction of Language and Time: Mathematics, Artificial Languages, and the Changing Idea of Time in the Scientific Revolution.” It is his interest in the history of linguistic thought and early efforts to create artificial languages that organically drew him to study mathematics and artificial intelligence.
When he is not working, Dan loves to read about the history of science, to study mind-stretching math ideas, to maintain his “Open Mind” blog, to teach what he knows to new programmers and to learn what he doesn’t from older ones. He also happens to be a huge boxing fan. But most of all, he loves to spend time with his wife and his two little girls.
Alex is Erdos Technologies’ Applied Mathematics Lead. He is an experienced and accomplished mathematician, and specializes in solving mathematical problems in a creative manner.
To Alex, mathematics is a conceptual science, so his method for problem solving often differs from the typical step-by-step approach. Understanding mathematics conceptually allows Alex to solve problems creatively by applying general methods and combining cross-subject principles.
Alex is a Doctor of Philosophy candidate at the CUNY Graduate Center where he specializes in Mathematics, with an emphasis on Functional Analysis. But he is also an expert in Complex and Real Analysis, Topology and Differential Geometry.
Prior to pursuing his PhD, Alex received a Master’s Degree in Mathematics from Queens College, where he received the Kulkarni Memorial Award for Excellence in Complex Analysis and Differential Geometry. He also received a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics from Tbilisi State University in Tbilisi, Georgia.
Beyond lecturing, Alex dedicates his free time to running extracurricular seminars on topics in mathematics. He enjoys engaging with others on the topics of mathematics and natural sciences. Outside of his professional interests and pursuits, Alex also enjoys spending time with his kids and playing tennis.
Kobe is Erdos’ Data & Product Analyst. As such, he spends his time collecting and analyzing market data designed to guide our product development process. Kobe’s work has a foundational role in the life cycle of our projects and his results have critical influence on the aspects that involve user experience design, market research, and predictive modeling. His domain expertise stands at the intersection of business analytics, economics, and finance.
The company was named after the twentieth-century mathematician Paul Erdos, as the mathematically inclined founders are inspired by his passion and his approach to solving open problems. Erdos was an eccentric, prolific, and profound thinker who, in quiet literal ways, lived according to the belief that problem-solving was a matter of constant social interaction. His entire life is a testament to intellectual freedom
