Ziff is lead by a team of people experienced with delivering first to market technologies. The company was founded with the drive to make AI applications around unstructured data simple. Imagine a world where domain experts and engineers work together to deliver valuable AI applications? After two years of market research we feel we have finally cracked the product shell to allow this to happen. The product we developed supports unstructured models around image, audio, video, and text. Ziff offers a unique AI offering which allows for hybrid models to be built across data types. Our most successful customers can do in weeks what similar organizations with data science talent fail to do in months.


David “Gonzo” Gonzalez is the CEO/CTO & Co-founder of ZIFF. At ZIFF he is leading the charge to empower the business and product visionaries chomping at the bit to leverage Ai-based automation and their software engineering counterparts accustomed to shipping value on a regular cadence. He is a reformed Data Scientist who believes that the Ai Innovation Highway is moving rapidly away from the prediction and forecasting that has been the focus of Big Data and BI and into the back office, systems, and processes that actually run the enterprise. Previous to ZIFF Gonzo worked for over a decade applying predictive analytics to marketing and finance. Gonzo has a BS and MS of Science from Brigham Young University.
