RED FRIDAY: JOSHUA CARR - GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT LEAD AT IBM

STUDIO ONE | FRIDAY 7 APRIL, 2017 | 9.30AM – 10:30AM

1 half developer, 1 half... everything else! Joshua holds the made up 'Technical Liaison' title affording him the Luxury of being wherever technology is being talked about. Passionate about all things cloud, he gets to showcase IBM's new offerings to those with whom he thinks matters most: the people who'll end up using them. Always energised, Joshua can be found head-in-laptop at a Hackathon, or talking frankly to developers on a show floor.

Joshua gained notoriety by programming a headset allowing him to control a BB8 robot with his brain waves, and he happens to also be an expert in Cognitive/AI and gaming applications.

Joshua is in NZ for the opening of IBM's new office in Wynyard quarter, he's giving a public talk at the Auckland AI Meetup and has kindly offered to do a special demo and speak to us at AUT during his brief visit.
