Will Murphy

I'm a business executive/ technologist and leader with a passion for data, collaboration, economics, computers, and brains. I belive that AI and energy are the two keys to the future of humanity. I grew up in TN and curently live in the Bay Area. I'm currently head of Innovation at Data.ai. Prior to that, I was Head of Product at Talla, an AI startup that was acquired in 2021. I also co-founded SenseAware, the unicorn within FedEx where we pioneered the first IoT remote-tracking logistics platform in 2011. In addition, I started what became FedEx Dataworks, the data and machine learning arm of FedEx, and the EPICenter Logistics Innovation Accelerator, sponsored by FedEx (launched 2015). Finally, I founded SurfRate, the internet search engine based on user website reviews (acq. 2004). I hold multiple patents in the areas of artificial intelligence, IoT, and online ads.
