Lecturer Anna Jordanous was invited to give a keynote speech to computer scientists at investment bank Credit Suisse.  The Credit Suisse IT Expo was themed around ‘AI & Robotics’ which ties in with Anna’s area of expertise, which is computational creativity.

Anna was selected alongside speakers from the machine learning and artificial intelligence fields. One of the speakers was a former student Toby Leheup who works for Credit Suisse in the Semantic Technology, Analytics & Machine Intelligence team. Toby graduated from Kent in 2016 with a First in BSc Computer Science (Artificial Intelligence) with a Year in Industry. He went to work for Credit Suisse after graduating, and he had also done a summer placement year with the organisation.

Anna said; ‘I am obviously delighted to be able to showcase my research with professionals in industry, but it is even more rewarding to be able to share the platform with a graduate who is making his mark in computer science.’
