Our origin story
It all began with machine learning (ML) algorithms developed by our co-founders – Greta Cutulenco, Sebastian Fischmeister, and Jean-Christophe Petkovich – in the world-renowned engineering laboratories at the University of Waterloo. Their collaboration resulted in Acerta LinePulse, a suite of SaaS solutions for precision manufacturing to enhance on-station and end-of-line testing, accelerate root cause analysis, and improve first-time through (FTT) yield.
Out of LinePulse grew our second offering, Acerta Professional Services: customized solutions developed according to customer data and specific needs. These services leverage our team’s domain expertise acquired through years of working on machine learning and artificial intelligence (ML/AI) solutions for automotive and off-highway vehicle manufacturing.
We turn complex manufacturing data into actionable insights
Driven by data science and forged from industrial experience, Acerta helps precision manufacturers turn complex product data into actionable insights.
More than half of our in-house engineers are experts in data science and ML/AI technologies. Together, our team combines the ability to operationalize ML/AI with in-depth knowledge of the automotive, transportation, and precision manufacturing industries to unlock hidden value contained within vehicle data.
Our CEO and co-founder, Greta Cutulenco, works directly with automotive OEMs and Tier-1 manufacturers, helping them to make sense of their data. Named to the Forbes 30-Under-30 list for Manufacturing and 2019’s Canadians to Watch by Automotive News, Greta is also an Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association (APMA) board member.
Sebastian Fischmeister is a professor with over 20 years of academic experience at the University of Waterloo and the University of Pennsylvania in data collection, analysis, and ML/AI applications.
Our CTO, Alan Tan, is a 13-year SAP veteran. He brings 25+ years of technology leadership experience in cloud solutions, IoT data strategy, and operationalizing machine learning. A data scientist of UC Berkeley and a Kellogg MBA, Alan is a pioneer in bringing near-zero-maintenance machine learning to the plant floor and on-road-vehicle ecosystems.
