Founded in 2019, JY Advisory, a Maryland based consulting company, started by designing and developing artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced analytics solutions. By leveraging our decades of consulting and technical expertise, we won our first prime federal contract on AI within six months. Focused on data analytics, research, program evaluation, and knowledge management, we demonstrate innovation in everything we do, whether it is a solution, product, service, or process. We believe in technologies for humanity – that is, we aspire to make the world a better place to live in through technologies. We value fair opportunities and we strive to serve vulnerable and underserved communities through projects and initiatives.
Fascinated with human intelligence and how brains work, Hong pursued PhD in Cognitive Psychology/Decision Making at the University of Maryland, College Park. Her experience in Mathematical Statistics backed decision making and human cognition research fueled her passion of intelligent analytics, discovery of insights through synthesizing information, and finding patterns that no single human eye can easily see. Prior to founding JY Advisory LLC, Hong was a Director at KPMG after a series of leadership roles at IBM and Deloitte, where she led analytics initiatives and consulting services, and spearheaded technology products. Before her consulting career, Hong was an research assistant professor at UMD doing cognitive science research at the National Institutes of Health, Brain Imaging Group.
