Fun Fact: Tatyana is an amateur painter who loves to draw portraits of people and animals. She's a fan of many sports activities from yoga to hiking. Tatyana also loves to do impossible things, and regards the NeoMatrix project as impossible enough to interest and amaze her.
Head of AI Development
Tatyana Khitrova is Head of Development at NeoMatrix. She has 13 years of experience in cryptography, reverse engineering, windows hooks applications, and multi-threading. Tatyana is also experienced in numerous languages, such as C++, C#, Go, Python, and PHP. She has a masters degree in applied maths, and helped found NeoMatrix.
Tatyana has extensive experience in complex algorithms, including graphs, routing, and a focus on high performance. She feels equally at home with NoSQL databases, and many standard tools and environments. She also loves puzzles, and devises creative solutions to optimise every bit, and CPU cycle.
Tatyana provides solid leadership to our development team. She is also deeply involved in generating an extensive pre-computation database, using many different algorithms, developed in-house. Tatyana is also the lead on developing our core application code, which resolves historical tracked movement.
Fun Fact: Jonathan has lived in the USA, Israel, UK, Cyprus, Poland, and is now back in the USA, trying to decide his next destination! He loves comic books. In 18 months, he built the largest comic book businesses outside of the USA, hopefully bringing smiles to many kids :)
Senior Researcher & Developer
Jonathan Hashkes is our pioneering technical leader. He founded Magic Software, a 4GL database app development environment. This entity became Israel's first company to go public on NASDAQ.
He also co-founded NDS (acquired by Cisco and now goes by Synamedia), which pioneered pay-TV conditional access systems. Most set-top boxes with a smart card use the patent Jonathan developed at NDS. His patents relate to low bandwidth compression techniques. This was needed to address millions of subscribers over satellite broadcast streams with low bit rates of only 100 bits/second.
Jonathan has used his deep knowledge of compression to help develop core NeoMatrix technologies, such as compressing routes to tiny NeoTags. This is very useful for efficient, secure vehicle communication of route history. This is needed for dynamic road pricing, which is critical for solving traffic congestion.

Fun Fact: Azarel enjoys running, cycling and playing badminton.
Azarel Nadesan gained a degree in Econometrics in 2012, and since then has worked in two large international Banks and an international marketing conglomerate. Simultaneously, he has served as an adviser to a number of start-ups on Data Science.
Azarel's expertise lies in Machine Learning, especially reinforcement learning. In that field, he has in the past worked on low-latency reinforcement learning systems, robotic control systems using reinforcement learning, and generative adversarial networks at scale in Transaction monitoring systems.
Motto: Life's not about the destination, but the route.
Fun Fact: Gilbert enjoys short, efficient walks on the beach, is single and looking for that special someone who will help him raise his flag, joining him on the journey of life.
Gilbert E. Dijkstra
Gilbert's humble upbringing as one of the last of many siblings has never stood in the way of leaving his unique mark on the world. This edgy former elite color-guard champion met NeoMatrix founder, Chris Cooper, in a chance encounter while on a mountain climbing expedition in Europe. While he originally set his sights on staking his flag at the highest summit, Gilbert never imagined the greater heights he and Chris would make together in tracking, or anticipate the incredible twists and turns their journey would take them as they continue to mark history and explore new depths in their friendship.
Always providing a fresh angle for the team, Gilbert's contribution to NeoMatrix surpasses all those who've come before him. When he isn't working from the NeoLab (a secure, undisclosed location), you can spot Gilbert hot on your trail, always happy to wave you into your trip's finish line.
