History of H2O.ai

H2O.ai was founded in 2011 by SriSatish “Sri” Ambati, who previously co-founded Platfora, and Cliff Click, the lead developer of the Java Virtual Machine. Sri and Cliff witnessed the exponential growth in stored data and quickly realized that organizations would need help processing it all. With deep engineering backgrounds, Sri and Cliff were driven by a desire to help other developers and data scientists easily leverage powerful machine learning algorithms in their applications and began writing the base code for H2O. The rest, as they say, is history!
