Leximancer is supported by a management team with a distinguished academic and industry pedigree.
Dr. Andrew Smith, Founder, Chief Scientist
Andrew invented Leximancer. His early research training was in Physics, earning a Ph.D. from The University of Queensland, Australia in 1993. From 1993 to 2000, Andrew worked in IT, mostly in positions with close customer contact. That experience provided the insight needed to design useful technology for the consumer. In 2000 he pursued a Master's degree in information science to develop a robust computational system for quantifying and visualizing the conceptual information in large text collections. Andrew continues to develop new ways for Leximancer software to meet clients' needs.
