Meet the team behind Aqueduct

Aqueduct was founded in 2020 by a team of Berkeley Computer Science professors and PhDs. We believe that running machine learning in the cloud is simply too difficult. This infrastructure complexity is drastically cutting the impact machine learning could have.
We're laser-focused on building the simplest infrastructure possible to help machine learning teams be more productive.
