Ben Medlock, CTO and co-founder, TouchType

A session at MEX November 2011

  • Ben Medlock

Wednesday 30th November, 2011

10:10am to 10:40am (GMT)

We invited Ben to MEX after watching how his deep knowledge of user behaviour, language and mobile technology led to the creation of one the great Android success stories: SwiftKey. Ben's team developed the popular SwiftKey application for Android, using A.I. to improve the experience of typing on mobile devices. His session at MEX will focus on Pathway #12, investigating the emergence of 'inference technologies' to model the decision making abilities of the human brain. The talk will touch on the philosophy of cognition and look at some of the tools available for tackling inference problems. After completing a PhD at Cambridge University in computational linguistics, Ben co-founded TouchType, an innovative London-based tech company building next generation text entry software for mobile devices.
