“The Industry's Best Faculty!”
Co-Founder & CEO, Twiggle
Amir is the CEO and Co-founder of Twiggle, a company pioneering the use of artificial intelligence in online retail. Feeling that traditional keyword search was providing a suboptimal online shopping experience, Amir launched Twiggle in 2014 with CTO and Co-founder Adi Avidor to bring the power of human understanding to ecommerce search. Today, they’ve assembled a world-class team of engineers and data scientists to reimagine what's possible in online shopping. Some of the world’s largest retailers now use Twiggle to connect people to the products they are looking to buy—faster and better.
Prior to Twiggle, Amir worked on human machine interfaces for autonomous vehicles at General Motors and was one of the founding members of Google’s operations in Israel. He also co-founded and serves on the leadership team of Israel Brain Technologies, an organization founded under the auspices of former Israeli President Shimon Peres.
Amir holds a PhD in Rationality and Interactive Decision Making from Hebrew University and Princeton University. He is the author of more than 25 patents and 15 academic publications.
