We are excited to share that Cathy Edwards will be our guest at AFN's May Fireside Chat.
Cathy is a founder and entrepreneur specializing in mobile and algorithmic big data products. Many Aussies in tech will also recall Cathy co-founded Chomp, an app search engine, which was acquired by Apple in 2012.
Cathy then became Director of Engineering at Apple for iTunes, the App Store and Maps. She's now the Director of Image Search at Google, and runs both product and engineering, after Google preemptively acquired her prelaunch search startup, code named Undecidable Labs. Cathy has degrees in computer science, pure mathematics and linguistics from the University of Western Australia
The AFN's Kate Kendall will interview Cathy about her move to the USA from Australia, trends in big data, how she prepared her companies for acquisition and more. There'll also be plenty of time for Q&A from the community.
