About Tom Hoar, founder & managing partner

I founded Slate Rocks LLC in Florida, USA with Del Winn. I live in Thailand about 7-8 months each year and divide the rest of my time between Florida and conferences somewhere in the world.

I’ve worked in speech & language technologies all life. In early 2008, my world turned up-side-down when I saw statistical machine translation in action. This is autobiographical article, Angst In a Time of Change. My resume is on Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tahoar/
