Werner G. Krebs (born c. 1977) is an American[5] data scientist. He is currently CEO of data science and artificial intelligence startup Acculation, Inc.[6] and has previously held positions at what are now Virtu Financial, Bank of America, and the San Diego Supercomputer Center.[1][7][8]

He was initially hired out of high school by the Nobel Laureate James Heckman.[1][9][10] A graduate of the University of Chicago and University of Chicago Laboratory Schools, he is a Salzburg Global Fellow, Founder Institute Graduate, and IBM Global Entrepreneur.[1][6][11] He resides in Los Angeles.[7][12]

Krebs and his work have been discussed in news articles in journals,[13][14] newspapers,[15][16] books,[17][18] encyclopedias,[19] official government publications,[1][20][21] and internationally in multiple languages[22] over a period spanning more than one decade.[1][13][21]

Amongst other things, he is noted for the Database of Molecular Motions which was developed with Mark Gerstein while a PhD Candidate at Yale University.[13][14][19] He has also been noted[23] as the original author of GNU Queue,[22][24] a 2000s-era load balancing and parallel processing system with a simplified in-line interface.[22][25] Although GNU Queue was decommissioned in 2015 in favor of GNU Parallel,[26] it was originally described in 1998 as having some functionality similar to LSF, which at the time was closed source commercial software.[27] A simplified version of LSF was later open sourced circa 2007, eventually named OpenLava and under a GPL license compatible with GNU Queue. Thus, both GNU Parallel and OpenLava may be considered related GPL’d projects, although the latter is not formally a GNU project.[28] He was an academic, on the faculty at UCSD.[4][1][10]
