About this event

It's time to talk about Artificial Intelligence! Ben started SwiftKey with his friend when they realised that shrinking keyboards were not cutting it for mobile touch-screen typing. They made it their mission to solve this problem using artificial intelligence. With 200 million devices worldwide, SwiftKey Keyboard is Google Play's most popular keyboard app and SwiftKey was listed by APPLE on their BEST OF 2014! SwiftKey raised more than $20m in funding to date from angels and investors including Accel Partners, Index Ventures and Octopus Investments. Today SwiftKey employs over 160 people from 26 different nationalities that hold almost 200 degrees and are based on 3 continents. We will have a fireside chat with the founder of SwiftKey and its CTO, Ben Medlock. Ben will talk to our audience about their journey, how they took the business off the ground, what were their biggest struggles and how they scored their homeruns.
