About Dr. Paul Lewicki

Prior to its acquisition by Surgalign, Dr. Lewicki served as President of Holo Surgical, Inc. where he played a significant role in developing the revolutionary Augmented Reality and Artificial Intelligence platform. He is a cognitive scientist, entrepreneur, and investor, and a former professor of cognitive psychology at the University of Tulsa, where he established the Nonconscious Information Processing Laboratory funded by multiple grants from the NSF and NIH. He was among the first scientists to publish evidence that the advanced expertise, acquired by humans from experience, involves multivariate and highly-interactive patterns in data, which are much more complex than what humans can consciously articulate or even communicate. This approach became popular and quickly adopted by the corporate world as so-called “predictive data mining” – making computers derive from Big Data more complex patterns than what humans can understand, and then use these patterns to make new predictions.

He started StatSoft, a company that pioneered commercial applications of data mining, and rapidly became a large developer of data mining solutions for all industries, with offices in 30 countries and over 1 million accounts. He was the CEO and largest shareholder when StatSoft was acquired by Dell in 2014

“I am excited to be joining Surgalign’s board of directors and leveraging my expertise in predictive analytics and digital technology to help the company advance the standard of spine care by reimagining what is possible through integrated intelligent technology,” commented Dr. Lewicki.
