Please RSVP on our Eventbrite event page https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hnlondon-january-2018-tickets-41756845850 Hope you all had an amazing festive break. We are back for another amazing evening with awesome talks. We decided to run a dry event this month to see how the event would work without beer. We had feedback that having a boozy event might put some people off from attending and we wanted to address that. We will still have plenty of pizza though and folks are welcome to join us at the pub after the event. Our lineup for next week is as follows 18:15 - Soft drinks, pizza and networking18:45 - Sponsor introductions18:50 - Peter Kohler - Lift Off! How machine learning and drones can help fight the The Plastic TideThe Plastic Tide are developing and applying an approach to autonomously detect, identify, measure, monitor and map the levels of plastics washing up on our coastlines. The technique involves an assembly of volunteer piloted drone-mounted video sensors scanning beaches and machine learning algorithms trained by citizen scientists via the Zooniverse platform to the detect plastics and litter.19:10 - Raphaël Mazet and Jakub Wojciechowski, co-founders of Alice - Using blockchain to track charity impactAlice is a decentralised social funding and impact management platform built on Ethereum, It incentivises social organisations to run their projects transparently, so that funders can identify and scale those that are truly effective. Alice's CEO and CTO, Raphaël and Jakub, will share their experience (and the challenges) of getting Alice's first application, a hyper transparent donation platform that only pays charities if they achieve their goals, into production. They’ll also present the work they’re doing with large financial institutions and NGOs, and the future of the Alice network.19:30 - break19:40 - Kat Bowles - On ‘joining the (engineering) club’ as a womanHear findings from Kat’s recent academic research on how female software engineers identify with their careers and experience ‘fitting in’, in a male-dominated industry.
