Todd Chapman

Co-Founder, Technical Lead

Todd Chapman contributes experience in aerospace engineering, computational mathematics, and computer programming, along with a unique ability to creatively draw on insights from adjacent fields such as robotics.  This led him to develop the theory behind Hypernet’s HyperCore algorithm, and then actually create it. Todd is especially interested in developing fault tolerant algorithms and stable neural network architectures, and so it is no surprise that he became a Hypernet cofounder. His long list of achievements includes a Stanford University PhD, the Department of Defense Science and Engineering Fellowship, work on NASA’s Cassini mission, modeling work for TARDEC, and more.  Todd also enjoys collecting first editions, and sometimes he even reads them.
