But what does ChatGPT think of the house? While he’s not exactly a household name, Daniel Nadler made history in 2018 when the fintech firm he co-founded, Kensho Technologies, became the most valuable private artificial intelligence (A.I.) company in history. So it’s no surprise the Harvard Ph.D could recently afford to buy a suitably sleek and technology-packed house in the mountains high above Beverly Hills.
Spec-built in 2018, the 8,000-square-foot contemporary last sold in 2021 for $12 million to fellow tech entrepreneur Daniel Saks, the co-founder of AppDirect. Saks held onto the property for less than two years before flipping it for just over $13 million to Nadler.
The house itself is perched atop a steeply sloped lot, and thus sits rather hard up on the street. But the place offers plenty of private parking — in addition to a couple driveway spots, the showroom garage has space for up to six luxury automobiles. The property is also fully walled and gated, and equipped with a state-of-the-art Control4 smart home system — the surround-sound system and all the lights, locks and cameras can be operated via iPhone, from within the home or from halfway across the globe.
Behind an essentially windowless façade, the structure’s main level offers endless walls of glass, a chef’s kitchen, formal dining room and “several living rooms,” per the listing, including one with a fireplace encased in a striking floor-to-ceiling wall of gray marble. All five of the bedrooms offer ensuite bathrooms, and there are not one but two master suites, both with canyon views, stone-swaddled bathrooms and showroom closets.
Downstairs, the relaxation-themed lower level includes a movie theater, a games room, gym and lounge with a wet bar. Throughout the entire home, the theme is luxurious contemporary simplicity — the walls are starkly white, the scattered chandeliers chicly minimalist, and the floors all bone-colored stone.
Founded in 2012, AI-powered Kensho Technologies was ultimately acquired by S&P Global for $550 million. After leaving S&P’s executive ranks, Nadler reportedly moved to the Caribbean island of St. Barts, though he’s hardly retired — two years ago, he founded AI systems developer Xyla. The 39-year-old is also a published poet; in 2018, he was elected to the board of directors of the Academy of American Poets.
