Jeff Stollman is a polymath developing solutions to difficult problems across a wide range of disciplines including sensors, robotics, financial services, force protection, weapons demilitarization, non-lethal weapons systems, information technology, information security, and privacy. He currently holds patents in artificial intelligence, privacy, and financial services and has patents pending in financial services, information security, and non-lethal weapons.
He has been effective developing "out-of-the-box" solutions by using information from one discipline to cross-fertilize another. In this way, he has developed novel solutions that were invisible to the same way of looking at problems.
Mr. Stollman holds a Masters degree from Tufts University and has supported prestigious clients including IBM, Boeing, Northrop Grumman, US Bank, Merrill Lynch, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Ford, and a wide array of federal agencies, including the DoD and Intelligence communities. He is deeply involved in global standards organizations, having served as chairman of the Privacy and Public Policy working group of the Kantara Initiative. He currently serves as a technical expert to the International Telecommunications Union – Technology (ITU-T) organization and supports the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL).
Mr. Stollman has presented at such conferences as Global Indexing and ETFs, the European Identity and Cloud Conference, the RSA security conference, the Internet Identity Workshop, and the Computer Security Institute. He has also appeared as an expert witness on behalf of the US EPA in public hearings on the economic impact of proposed noise abatement regulations, and has testified at numerous hearings on protests of federal procurements.
SENSORS, ROBOTICS, and the INTERNET OF THINGS (IoT)
Mr. Stollman has led design teams targeting IoT products for a variety of industries including supply-chain integrity, medical prescription compliance, autonomous robots, collision avoidance systems, aerial surveillance systems. He has also led design teams focused on robotics included the development of a fully automated, modular, transportable robotic factory to demilitarize every weapon in the US chemical arsenal. The factory operated without human intervention, carrying out all materials handling while neutralizing both chemical and explosive agents in an environmentally friendly way and recycling metals such as brass, copper, and lead. He is a member of a global consortium seeking to develop solutions and global standards for identity and privacy for the IoT.
Mr. Stollman is a consultant with a focus on identity, privacy, and security. He has a background in a wide range of disciplines including sensors, robotics, financial services, force protection, non-lethal weapons systems, weapons demilitarization, information technology, as well as information security, and privacy. He currently holds patents in privacy, security, artificial intelligence, and financial services. Relying on this experience for cross-pollination, he brings a heretical perspective to the traditional views of identity and privacy.
In the domains of identity and privacy, Mr. Stollman co-developed the concept of a Trust Framework Meta-Model to serve as a set of universal coordinates to map various trust frameworks and provide a consistent basis to perform gap analyses on the federation ability of different identity schemes. He has also performed some pioneering work in assessing future risks presented by the Internet of Things and possible mitigations for them.
Mr. Stollman has presented at such conferences as the European Identity Conference, the Internet Identity Workshop, and the Computer Security Institute. He has also appeared provided expert witness testimony on behalf of the US government in public hearings.
Mr. Stollman led a design team that developed a portable, modular, robotic factory capable of demilitarizing every weapon in the US chemical arsenal without human intervention. The factory could be shipped via rail and constructed at various military depots to minimize shipping of weapons. It was capable of handling weapons ranging from small arms munitions to bombs and spray tanks, neutralizing both chemical and explosive agents in an environmentally friendly way and generating lead, brass, and copper for resale.
Mr. Stollman has optimized operations as a plastics factory in California, and designed novel manufacturing processes for pharmaceuticals, automotive, and industrial applications. He has also designed material handling solutions (both low-tech and high-tech) to reduce costs for a wide range of manufacturing processes globally.
Mr. Stollman has devised techniques for structuring leveraged index products (e.g., ETFs, ETNs, ETCs) that are path independent – making them applicable for long-term investment even in volatile markets. He has also conceived of hedging strategies to support these investment structures.
