My interest in computer science began because I wanted to follow in the engineering pursuits of industrialist and philanthropist, Tony Stark – better known as the fictional Marvel superhero, Ironman.
As a genius inventor, I share Stark’s fascination for developing artificially intelligent inventions to make processes more efficient for humankind.
Despite a range of benefits, AI technology can lead to problems if we do not carefully observe what the negative impacts on society and the environment currently are, and what we can predict they could be.
This is the reason I chose to study BSc (Hons) Computer Science and MSc in Data Science and Business Analytics, with the University of Plymouth – to learn and develop computer science solutions for today and tomorrow.
Since graduating, I have started my own business in the analytics industry so I can use tools to help others find employment. The knowledge I gained studying at Plymouth has given me the foundation I required in software development, analytics and business.
This was recognised by me winning third prize in a Business Start-Up Challenge when I was a consultant with Imagen Insights – a company that gains qualitative and quantitative insight from the global Gen Z community.
