Hi! I’m Daniel Kronovet, a data scientist living in Tel Aviv. I work at Colony.io as a research engineer, writing the smart contracts powering their future-of-work platform, and was part of the team which developed Budget Box, a mechanism for decentralized capital allocation. I was most recently at Foursquare, on the Pilgrim machine learning team, helping to improve the quality of their location intelligence.

I graduated from Columbia, with an M.A. in QMSS, emphasizing the core math and computer science underlying modern machine learning. You can read my (fun) thesis here.

I am interested in the future of technology, as it pertains to questions of production, distribution, and management, as well as in more abstract questions of representation and measurement.

In past lives, I have worked on a kibbutz in Israel, lived in a Buddhist monastery in Thailand, and served on the boards of multiple non-profits.

I completed my B.A. at UC Berkeley, as a double major in Cognitive Science and Political Economy. While there, I was actively involved in the leadership of the Berkeley Student Cooperative.

I grew up in Santa Monica, where I played on my high school drumline and became an Eagle Scout.
