Luis Capelo



My mission is to create systems that allow for humans and intelligent machines to collaborate.

I am a Staff Data Scientist at Glossier, one of the fastest-growing beauty startups in the world. My role gives me the opportunity to investigate how a new and more inclusive concept of beauty positively affects people's lives and to support its spread to new markets.

Previously I worked for Forbes Media as the head of the Data Products team. The team's solutions includes an AI-agent that collaborates with writers, a swarm of bots that help our editors distribute our content, and a new analysis tool that traces and predicts how our content is shared. Prior to Forbes, I led a team of world-class scientist at the Flowminder Foundation where we developed predictive models for assisting the humanitarian community. And prior to that I worked for the United Nations as part of the Humanitarian Data Exchange team (founders of the Center for Humanitarian Data).

I am a native from Havana, Cuba. And a collaborator to La Cabaña Cuba Consulting Group, a small consultancy firm dedicated to supporting the nascent Cuban private sector.
