Staff Software Engineer, LinkedIn
Benjamin Hendricks is the founder of Hendricks Software, a Staff Software Engineer at LinkedIn, and a Harvard and UCLA alumnus. His primary academic and professional foci span the areas of artificial intelligence and machine learning systems.
Benjamin's postgraduate research focused on fantasy football, specifically a machine learning system that could create more accurate projections for players than the existing professional site projections. He has continued that research beyond his thesis, upgrading the system to enable faster, "live" data capture. At LinkedIn, his work on mobile applications and AI helps to deliver the best possible content experience to the millions of members that utilize the platform.
Hendricks Software has served a number of clients, notably the fitness app MySwimPro, where he worked extensively on the Apple Watch platform. Benjamin is also an avid swimmer and water polo player, having competed at the collegiate level.
Benjamin is fully bilingual with dual citizenship in both the United States and France. He currently lives in New Orleans' Garden District with his wife and dog. He continues developing his player projection models in his spare time.
