Event description
A career in algorithm development

About this Event

A few years ago relatively few people knew what an algorithm was. Now they make the headlines everyday and are shaping the very fabric of our society. The best algorithms are a beautiful intersection of mathematics and computing. For those few with the right mix of skills to understand and excel in this field an incredible career path lies ahead. This talk will try to provide a glimpse into the life of a professional algorithm developer, with examples of real world problems and solutions. Come along and see if this could be you!

Jamie graduated from Oxford University in 2002 with a Masters in Mathematics. Since then he has worked as a professional algorithm developer in several industries, specialising in mathematical modeling, computer vision and machine learning. In 2014 he co-founded an algorithm development consultancy that provided elegant technical solutions to companies around the world. This culminated in the development of a 3D body measurement system known as ZOZOSUIT, which was recognised by Time Magazine as a Best Invention of 2018. Today, Jamie is CEO of ZOZO New Zealand and continues to lead a team of brilliant developers pushing the frontiers of modern technology.

This talk is part of the 2019 ABI Tuesday Seminar Series. The seminars are all open to the public, and there will be a new talk each Tuesday, from 4-5pm, held at the Auckland Bioengineering House, 70 Symonds St.
