Alexander’s unique background and passion for technology and the real-world implications of it allows him to beat out a talented field of competitors vying for the 2019 Simplr Artificial Intelligence and Technology Scholarship award

Simplr, a leading US-based customer service outsourcing company, is honored to announce Alexander Conner as the 2019 winner of the Simplr Artificial Intelligence and Technology Scholarship.

Alex’s application eclipsed fierce competition that included dozens of students nationwide in various stages of their educational journeys. Alex is a candidate for A.B. in Economics and Sc. B. in Applied Mathematics from Brown University.

For the 2019 Simplr Artificial Intelligence and Technology Scholarship award, applicants were to provide an essay and supporting documentation that demonstrated their willingness and ability to be a candidate for success in one of the following fields: artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain technology or Intellectual Property (IP) law.

Alex's submission, titled "Artificial Intelligence, Intellectual Property, and Incentive Structure" does an excellent job at covering the interplay between AI and IP ownership, and offers a great balance of both technical detail and big picture thinking that few other applicants were able to provide.

Additionally, Alex's unique background and passion for technology and the real world implications of it set him apart as the clear favorite from several other outstanding applicants.

"Studying Applied Mathematics and Economics puts me at the epicenter of ML's potential. Simultaneously studying numerical minimization techniques and economic theory really opens my mind to the possibilities."

In response to winning this content, Alex states: "As my University's charter declared in 1764, it prepares me to, "Discharge the offices of life with usefulness and reputation." In other words, to be a leader by example. With this scholarship award, I am that much more able to see through my ideas about how the cutting edge of applied mathematics might mold a brighter future."

We’d like to congratulate Alex again and we're very excited for what the future holds for him.
