Mike Dillinger, PhD, Strategic Advisory Board Member to SaaSMAX for the PartnerOptimizer solution is Manager, Taxonomy Development & Human Judgements Program for LinkedIn. Dr. Dillinger is best known for his work on Machine Translation or “MT”. He spent 20 years making this technology effective in the hands of translators and in the organizations that employ them. In the last 10 years, MT went from being very rarely used by translation companies to being one of their most widely used technologies. Now he is doing the same thing for Machine Learning, making this technology effective in the hands of the non-engineers who design, build, and curate knowledge graphs. Dr. Dillinger served as President of the Association for Machine Translation in the Americas from 2012-2014 and is an Advisory Board member to ADAPT Centre for Digital Content Technologies. He earned his PhD in Cognitive Sciences at MgGill University.
