It all started With a Research Paper…

Specifically, a paper that won ten thousand dollars in grant money that was never used. Ariel left his graduate program to found Lazarus. Initially founded as a proof of concept financial firm, in January of 2018, Lazarus’s consulting division opened up. Focusing on applying theoretical work in deep learning to real world business problems.

Lazarus’s Prophet initiative began in July of 2018. After several months of r&d, Prophet’s first public appearance was at the Forbes 30 under 30 Summit. Prophet formally launched in November of 2018, with its cervical cancer screening methods being made available to physicians.
