We are pleased to collaborate with AI Society and FinTech Society to bring you our first speaker event of the year!

Join us in listening to one of the most influential women in machine learning, Alison Choy, Head of Machine Learning at Starling Bank, as she informs us of her career journey, the work in her PhD and the challenges she’s faced along the way. The talk will end with a 20 minute Q&A. This is sure to be an unmissable event!

“I really loved science as a kid, I wanted to find out how the world worked”

Alison taught herself English aged 14 and moved on her own from Hong Kong to the UK. She studied Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge and focused on Chemistry for her undergraduate degree, Biophysical chemistry and proteins for her Masters, and studied how humans absorb and metabolise drugs for her PhD in order to speed up the drug discovery process. It was here that Alison picked up programming and led her to Starling Bank.

At Starling Bank she started working on their Marketplace, the connective platform that gives customers access to the most innovative financial products on the market and has been involved in many exciting projects.

So come along and listen to Alison’s story on 15th October 6-7pm!
