Magisto’s Emotion Sense Technology (EST)

A.I. used to be the stuff of science fiction, but for us it is the breakthrough technology that allows us to do what we do. Magisto’s Emotion Sense Technology ® enables anyone to finally turn their stockpile of images and video into high quality movies with Hollywood style suspense, tear-jerking nostalgia or hair-raising action.


The Team

Dr. Oren Boiman

CEO & CO-FOUNDER

I am a scientist and a father. After the birth of our first child, my wife and I shot buckets of digital images. Like every other new parent, we were eager to make home movies to celebrate the new addition to our family. It took us two WEEKS to come up with three minutes of video we were proud of! The irony? I was a Ph.D. student at the time, researching the science of Video Vision.That was when I realized that I could apply my work in Artificial Intelligence to an everyday need for millions of people. That was the day I realized the world needed Magisto.

Dr. Alex Rav-Acha

CTO & CO-FOUNDER

I have always viewed the world through a mathematician's eye. What others see as a nice looking video, I perceive as a well optimized selection and a solution to an algorithmic problem. I'm also a voracious movie fan. With my work at Magisto, I get to feed both my creative and scientific curiosity. I'm fascinated by the process of applying mathematical logic to the artistic process of filmmaking.

Reid Genauer

Chief Marketing Officer

I've always been fueled by building things. I first discovered this love of entrepreneurship as the lead singer of an independent rock band called Strangefolk, based out of Vermont. I toured the country and made nearly a dozen albums on the back of bootstrapped hard work and DIY sheer will. That passion for working with a small team to build something special has led me to the intersection of media and disruptive technology – a location at the heart of the Magisto story.

My Rock and Roll Background:
Senior Marketing Executive – Fox Mobile Group, eMusic, Snapple Beverage Group
Lead Singer, Assembly of Dust and Strangefolk
MBA. Cornell University
BS. University of Vermont
