#WeAreArity: Karl Kempe
When Mom asks me what it is that I do again, I say…
At Arity, I help others understand the value of our data by converting raw data into predicting some sort of behavior and translating our data into something more easily digestible by a human.
In your own words, what is Arity?
Arity is a company with a lot of smart people who care about fixing the state of transportation.
My favorite mode of transportation is…
The train (Metra specifically). Once I find a seat, I’ll read a book, review some foreign vocab on Duolingo, or listen to music.
On a Saturday afternoon, you can find me…
Hanging out with my wife and baby. If there is some home improvement to be done, I’ll try to figure it out before I call the handyman.
If you could volunteer for any cause, what would it be? Why?
I would volunteer to be a mentor or big brother to anyone who needs help navigating life’s choices to optimize for one’s own happiness.
Most people don’t know I…
Took acting lessons during a summer when attending college. It was a lot of fun! And I even had an opportunity to direct a show at school. I would encourage anyone to take an acting or improvisation class.
The theme song of my life is…
Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd. If you met me, you would understand.
Would you get in a self-driving car? Why or why not?
Of course! I trust robots more than humans.
Favorite innovation pioneer?
Guido van Rossum. Python is an awesome language that anyone can pick up and use.
