About Us


We are dMetrics, an AI company founded by two MIT PhDs. Our work is based on three ideas:

  1. Domain experts know best what's right for them. You, not ML engineers, are in charge.

  2. No single AI will control the world; millions of people will train millions of AIs.

  3. To have real impact, AI must be a democracy.

Our innovations in natural language processing lie at the core of a state-of-the-art NLP architecture for analyzing large collections of unstructured text. dMetrics clients include some of the largest pharmaceutical and financial companies, as well as ad agencies that serve them. Our team is comprised of some of the world's top authorities in machine learning (ML) and NLP. dMetrics' investors include Nicholas Negroponte (founder of the MIT Media Lab and One Laptop Per Child), Evan Schulman (commonly known as one of the "fathers of electronic trading"), John Johnson (president of BuzzFeed), and other industry leaders.




Paul Nemirovsky, PhD

Co-founder and CEO

Paul is the cofounder and CEO of dMetrics, a company that places AI in the hands of every business user. Paul leads dMetrics’ strategic development and oversees the company’s commercial efforts.

Gabriele Musillo, PhD

Director of Research

Gabriele serves as dMetrics Director of Research. In this role, he initiates and executes core research tasks in statistical NLP. Gabriele holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Geneva, where he also completed his undergraduate studies in logic and linguistics, and was a postdoctoral research associate at FBK-irst. Gabriele has also served as Senior Lecturer at the University of Geneva, teaching the applications of deep learning to NLP. His research work has focused on data-driven statistical techniques for learning deep relationships between different levels of representation of linguistic data. In particular, he codeveloped the first recurrent neural network to jointly parse syntactic and semantic structures. His work on structure prediction models integrating latent states and shallow semantic information has been published in the most highly regarded academic conference proceedings and journals in the field. His current research focuses on integrating interactive machine learning and representation learning, to make the process of teaching machines near real-time, collaborative, effective, and accessible to any end user.
