Let's get techy with it!
It's our first TECH TALKS event in 2019, and we'd love to have you come by!
Join us on Thursday, March 28th for an evening full of inspiring discussions, drinks and canapés at our Sydney Sirius HQ.
As always, we're excited to host three amazing speakers, who will be talking about building engineering teams, machine learning robotics, and — in honour of International Women's Day — a special talk on women in leadership positions.
"Building high-performing agile engineering teams"
How do we build a culture that consistently delivers and creates great software products? In this talk Daniel will go over some of the principles that he believes will lead to high-performing engineering teams. Setting up team culture is personal and the concepts discussed are part of Daniel's engineering manifesto that he often uses in structuring engineering teams.
Daniel Tome is a Technical Lead with 20 years of experience working in Digital, starting as a Front-End Developer and since utilising a broad range of technologies. He has worked with high profile brands, including McDonald's, KFC, Subaru and Qantas, and has been leading successful engineering teams delivering award-winning software.
"Ladies Who Lead"
Why you can have it all if you ask for it. As a young graphic designer, Stephanie dared to dive into the world of tech. Follow along as she shares her story of one woman's vision in a man's world!
Stephanie Campanella is a thought leader focused on motivating creatives to dial into the metrics of their business so they can create recurring profit and freedom. After building two amazing brands in the property/construction niche she's now focused on giving back to the creative industry through her ecosystem of free content and also paid consulting.
"Field Robotics and Machine Learning for Remote Infrastructure Inspections"
Robotic systems are increasingly being used to reduce costs, risks, and disruptions associated with structural inspections of remote assets such as ships, offshore rigs, and underwater pipelines. These systems enable dense high-quality data capture, which allows for accurate remote inspections without having a person on site. But what do we do with the captured data? Conventional manual data processing is often laborious, sparse and prone to subjective bias, which results in an incomplete and inaccurate understanding of the structural health of assets. This talk presents key innovation in field robotics, machine learning, and data analytics, which address these challenges and are transforming the infrastructure inspections industry.
Suchet Bargoti has a background in field robotics, with a particular interest in enabling machines to perceive the world around and make autonomous data-driven decisions. Suchet’s background is in integrating Machine Learning and computer vision for robotics, developed through a Ph.D. at the Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR). His research has impacted many applications, such as agricultural robotics, urban automation, underwater mapping, and space exploration. At Abyss Solutions, he leads the technical vision of the rapidly growing business in automating condition assessments of remote subsea assets.
