James Ray leads Deloitte’s Computer Vision offering, and the Deep Learning practice area for Computer Vision, Edge, and Sensor Modeling. On the commercial side, James guides Fortune 50 business and technical leaders through ML design thinking sessions to understand their needs, then translates those needs into custom ML solution formulations for execution. On the technical side, James specializes in complex use cases that require custom and multidisciplinary algorithm architectures (spatiotemporal deep learning for signal processing in brain-computer interfaces, hybrid computer vision/NLP architectures, etc.) He leads technical teams to research and design those algorithms, and deploys them at scale on cloud and edge platforms – with a focus on robust MLOps. He has extensive experience building and deploying custom ML solutions for enterprises, including in-the-wild computer vision platforms for e-Retail, AI-augmented design with GANs, and automated equipment inspection from drone platforms. As former Head of AI at Fresh Gravity, James gained recognition from Forrester as a global AI leader in 2018. He has collaborated as author and principal data scientist with Harvard Business School, Johns Hopkins, and the IITs.
