Late David Gbodi Odaibo

He said, "My brother, David Gbodi Odaibo, passed away yesterday. My heart is broken. He had a cardiac arrhythmia/heart attack in his sleep. He was fully vaccinated and did not have Covid. He and I were so close. He was only 42.

"David was kind, gentle, brilliant, and humble.

"He had a PhD in Computer Engineering and was a Kaggle Grandmaster, the highest attainable skill level in practical Machine Learning. He introduced me to Al."

He explained that a code developed by brother was chosen ahead of the pitches of companies backed by lots of money.

"The algorithm he wrote for automatically detecting threats at Airports just won a $125 Million contract from Department of Homeland security about 1 wk ago. His code beat out companies backed by Billions of dollars. So in the future when you safely fly the skies, please remember my brother David.

"Our hearts are broken. My poor parents, his wife and two young children. His 4 siblings. We are devastated.

"David and I were tremendously aligned in our interests and would often talk for hours. Our connection was rare and precious. We ended phone conversations with 'love you'. 

"Hug your loved ones and tell them you love them." 

"Though there may be sorrow in the night, joy comes in the morning. I'm comforted that David is with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ," he added.
