Steve Samler, consultant
Steve found his calling in a postage stamp sized classified ad in the Boston Globe back in 1991. A start-up company was looking for someone with knowledge of the telecom industry that could review newswire output culled by an AI engine. The output would be faxed as custom newspapers overnight to customers at the carriers and equipment manufacturers looking to get a leg up on the competition. The company was Individual Inc.After a few mergers, Steve ended up working for the R&D group of Thomson in Eagan MN, lending his expertise in company name discovery and resolution to the legal domain. Most recently, and also via a few mergers, Steve worked for Experian helping to extract people identities and resolve them to consumer data, criminal data and social media data. We don't know yet where this Covid data collection will lead, but hope to make it more useful by aligning it with other data organized by state and county.
