About Me

My name is Ian Ozsvald. I’m an Entrepreneurial Geek, living in London (after 10 years in Brighton and a year in Latin America). I co-run the Data Science agency ModelInsight (and in the background my older Mor Consulting), co-chair the 3,000+ member PyDataLondon meetup, co-chair the 3-year-old PyDataLondon Conference and I’ve published High Performance Python with O’Reilly in 2014.

Speaking this year:

Previously I’ve worked as Senior Programmer at Algorithmix (now Corpora) and the MASA Group, and these jobs came via my MSc in Artificial Intelligence at Sussex University.  See my LinkedIn profile.

Past projects include:

  • annotate.io – NLP to augment text
  • StrongSteam – computer vision as an API with Kyran Dale
  • The Artificial Intelligence Cookbook – ideas on using AI in industry
  • SocialTies (built with RadicalRobot) to help you find interesting folk via Twitter data mining at events
  • ShowMeDo.com – tutorial screencasts that teach you programming, see About ShowMeDo for more info.  This was my second company and I’m rather proud to say that it is financially self-sufficient, growing and is full of very useful user-generated (and us-generated) content.  100,000 users and 1TB of data served per month say that we built some very useful indeed. In 5 years ShowMeDo has educated over 3 million people about open source tools.
