Executive Workshop on AI and Data Science

I offer an intensive day-long Executive Workshop on AI and Data Science for founders, managers and business leaders: 

  • How to leverage AI and Data Science to power business and operations. 
  • How to innovate in Data Science and AI and integrate them into existing operational flows at scale. 
  • The best practices in developing ML/AI-heavy products and work processes.

The workshop is based on some of the key learnings from my class at Stanford GSB. It typically takes the format of 3 sessions, but can be customized to the length and format most suited for your needs. For workshop related inquiries, contact me here

At Stanford, I teach extensively with the Stanford GSB executive education programs, including The Stanford Executive Program (SEP), The Emerging COO and The Stanford-Endeavor Executive Program on AI and Data Science Strategies.


Consulting and Advising

I work with companies and investment funds to help them build core AI and Data Science capabilities and products, improve operational efficiency, and develop a comprehensive AI strategy. I have served as the Chief Data Science Advisor for Shipt Inc., Senior Advisor to Uber Inc., and scientific advisors to a number of startups as well as venture capital and private equity funds. Below are some examples of high-impact client AI-driven products that I have helped develop from conception, design, to wide deployment:


Kuang Xu has been an invaluable asset to my startup BlueQubit. His technical expertise and extensive network in both academia and industry have been instrumental in providing us with valuable insights and connecting us with top experts… He consistently displays a sharp intellect and a remarkable ability to mentor and advise early-stage startups. I highly recommend working with Kuang, as his contributions have been nothing short of excellent.

Kuang was an invaluable resource at helping us chart our direction and us benchmark ourselves to industry best practices. Kuang has a wealth of information on the ML space and his ability to translate that at all levels has been impressive– our Data Science team was able to directly work with Kuang due to his strong applied knowledge, but he was also able to speak at the strategic level to help us craft the tradeoffs we had to make. Kuang is a true end-to-end data leader and works well with uncertain problems and crafting innovative solutions.

I thoroughly enjoyed Professor Xu’s lecture at Stanford. His ability to make complex concepts such as AI and Data Science so interesting, understandable, and engaging is impressive.

Kuang is bright, engaging and has a great mix of technical and business acumen. He made a great impression on the COO cohort at GSB.
