Tim believes that experiments are the key to successful innovation. His recent work includes Artworks, Lego dogs and various Internet of Everything (IoE) devices, trying to figure out how people actually relate to their smart objects and what security features they expect from them. Last year in Berlin he co-founded |pipe| to add a secure, direct authenticated data transport layer between connected devices and their owners, having tested the practicality of these solutions in a video calling app for pets, called YoPet.
 Previous projects have included a training simulation for oil platforms, a time management app for a space telescope, a mobile phone network on a remote Pacific Island, and a solar-powered interactive art exhibit at the Burning Man festival. Learn more about Tim Panton on Crunchbase…

I believe artificial intelligence will improve most aspects of our lives in the next decade. AI is already “eating the world”​ today. In particular, I am interested in how emerging technologies such as deep learning can be used to build frictionless natural language interfaces. To this end I co-founded re:infer. I’m an old-fashioned hacker with strong understanding of machine learning and its proxy fields such as probability theory, statistical modelling, linear algebra and multivariate calculus. Academically, my interests are in probabilistic generative models of language. Learn more about Marius Cobzarenco on Crunchbase…

Zac is the co-founder and CTO of Ebsta, a business dedicated to delivering intuitive apps for businesses that integrate email and the web with CRM. After completing his Mechanical Engineering degree, Zac started developing software at a company called Perfect Information (PI). Zac followed his manager from PI to a new business called iProfile in 2000. Over the following 7 years, Zac became the product development director at iProfile running a team of 40 internal and external developers building a ‘big data’ platform that was processing 500,000+ resumes a month for the UK recruitment industry. The platform included a portal for jobseekers, a front end for recruiters along with a suit of API’s that were used to integrate with 18 disparate systems. Zac started Ebsta with his business partner Guy Rubin in 2013 as an app focussed on helping recruiters reference and update their CRM. In 2014 Ebsta expanded to service companies outside of recruitment. Since this expansion Ebsta has become the most popular ‘app’ in the Salesforce ecosystem (arguably the most popular app store in the world), with an install base of over 10,000 companies within a year. As CTO, Zac is responsible for reporting, strategy, security and performance. Outside of Ebsta Zac is an avid Arsenal fan, keen skier, father to Charlie and Sam, and husband to Faye.
