Christian Kasim Loan, also known as CKL is a computer scientist with over 10 years of coding experience who works for John Snow Labs as a Senior Data Scientist where he helps porting the latest and greatest Machine Learning Models to Spark and created the NLU library.

In the past, he architected and implemented a real-time big data lambda architecture for a Daimler research lab in Azure with Kubernetes, Prometheus Grafana, and Kafka. The created system is able to process millions of car generated IoT data streams in parallel, perform Geo-Spatial and Temporal analytics like traffic flow prediction with Graph Neural Networks on it, and visualize the results all in real-time and automatically scalable and built-in a self-healing fashion.

Before working at a Daimler lab, CKL worked at various AI labs in Berlin like GT-ARC and the Distributed Artificial Intelligence (DAI) where he built the big data infrastructure for the Meta Machine learning project CODA. In cooperation with DAI and Deutsche Telekom, CKL also created two NLP chatbots, one that consults customers on which mobile phone to buy and a second one that consults customers on how to solve a problem with their internet router device.

CKL also created and manages the CKL-IT consulting company, which works on various projects in the Big Data, DevOps, Data Science, Mobile-App, and Web domains.
