  •  - By Analytics Engines

    ‘Insights’ is a regular podcast series featuring engaging interviews with thought leaders and leading problem solvers from the world of data and analytics. Over the next few weeks, the podcast will profile some of the high-quality speakers addressing this year’s Big Data Belfast conference.

    Episode 1 was an interview with Paul Brook, director of data analytics and AI presales EMEA at DELL Technologies. This week, the team sat down Clair Sullivan from GitHub.

    Clair offers insight into her current role at GitHub and talks about her career trajectory, having first entered the working world as a nuclear engineer. She describes how she made the jump to machine learning, the overlap between nuclear emergency response and deep learning, coding languages and the power of perseverance.

    Now entering its 7th year, Big Data Belfast is a leading tech conference which brings together talent from across the technology and business communities. Last year saw more than 500 attendees representing over 100 companies. Big Data Belfast returns to the ICC Waterfront Hall Belfast on Thursday October 24th, and tickets are available now via the official Big Data Belfast eventbrite.
