According to Dr. Klare, Dr. Brazil’s addition brings “a high level of enthusiasm to our R&D team. We’re lucky to have him.”
Continued Growth and a Strong Team
ROC.ai is experiencing an exciting phase of growth.

“The excitement is infectious,” Mr. Hutchinson remarked, reflecting on the caliber of talent joining the team. “It’s great to see Brendan’s leadership with the research. He’s already built an amazingly talented team, and Scott Swann, our CEO, is adding rocket fuel to grow around our steady foundation.”
At ROC.ai, we believe that our people are our greatest asset. The addition of Dr. Garrick Brazil reaffirms our commitment to attracting the best talent and maintaining our leadership in the fields of biometrics, computer vision, and artificial intelligence. His expertise aligns with our mission to lead the industry in security, accuracy, and speed, as proven in various applications, including NIST government testing and tactical military applications.
