Dr. Saul Robinson
Principal, Fraign Analytics

Husband, father, and walker of two dogs, Saul Robinson is an American immigrant born in the United Kingdom and a long-term resident of St. Louis, Missouri. He holds a Bachelor's degree in physics from Imperial College, London, a Master's in mechanical engineering from Auburn, a PhD in Aeronautics from Saint Louis University, and is an Associate of the Royal College of Science. After leaving university (the first time), he pursued a career in aviation. As a result, he holds U.S. and European Air Transport Pilot certificates, flight & ground instructor certificates, and has held a Federal Air Agency Certificate as a Chief Instructor.

In his aviation career, he has flown corporate aircraft (King Air B200) and taught at Embry-Riddle and at Saint Louis University. After many years as a professor at SLU, an opportunity led him to leave academia and build his company. At Fraign Analytics, he is able to pursue his research interests full time. At Fraign, Dr. Robinson develops cloud based cooperative artificial intelligence & machine learning applications. In the past four years he has built solutions for flight simulation orchestration & pilot behavior prediction, multilingual natural language processing classification tasks, optical character recognition pipelines, anomaly detection, chat bots, database cloud streaming services, and customer behavior prediction tools.

Whilst in academia, he authored multiple journal articles covering NLP, data visualization, temporal analysis, and multi-label problems. Melding his research and professional experience, he currently has patents pending related to cooperative artificial intelligence systems. These patents cover systems development & integration, educational programming, and real-time augmentation systems.
