About Mariya

As an AI designer, I design and build lovable products enabled by modern big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence technologies. I also write and speak extensively to teach executives worldwide how to leverage new AI methodologies and tools to grow businesses and communities. 



I’m Chief Technology & Product Officer at Metamaven. Metamaven intelligently automates revenue growth for global companies.

We help businesses identify new markets, improve conversions, increase revenues, and reduce churn.


I’m Editor-In-Chief of TOPBOTS, the largest publication and community for enterprise AI executives.

I also co-authored the book Applied Artificial Intelligence: A Handbook For Business Leaders, and write for Forbes about the interplay of human and machine intelligence. 


I’m passionate about democratizing AI education and speak internationally at conferences like CES and SxSW as well as private corporate events.

Listen to my previous talks and invite me to speak at your event.
