About Me

Ian Ozsvald picture

My name is Ian Ozsvald. I’m an Entrepreneurial Geek, 30-late-ish, living in London (after 10 years in Brighton and a year in Latin America).

I take on work in my Artificial Intelligence consultancy (Mor Consulting Ltd.) and I also author The Artificial Intelligence Cookbook – learn how to add clever algorithms to your software to make it smarter! One of my mobile products is SocialTies (built with RadicalRobot).

I co-founded ShowMeDo.com in 2005, it is all about 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.

I’m also co-founder of the £5 Apps Meetup, OpenCoffee Sussex and the BrightonDigital mail list (RIP).

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.

Future project – annotate.io.

Ex project – StrongSteam.
