Mr. Jonas, a pioneer in contextual analytics and sensemaking, founded Systems Research and Development (SRD) in 1984. Following two rounds of venture capital, SRD was acquired by IBM in 2005. SRD's innovations intersected information sharing, non-obvious relationship awareness and real-time analytics.
One SRD innovation played a role in protecting the Las Vegas gaming industry from aggressive card-counting teams. Among them: the MIT blackjack team featured in Ben Mezrich's bestseller "Bringing Down the House," and the movie "21." This work is also frequently documented by Discovery Channel, Learning Channel and Travel Channel.
Most recently, Jonas was profiled as a big data innovator in a National Geographic article, entitled "Decoding Jeff Jonas, Wizard of Big Data."
