Alex Flint - Staff Software Engineer, Cruise Automation (acquired by GM); Co-founder, Zippy.ai (acquired by Cruise Automation); Head of Engineering, Kite.com; DPhil (Computer Vision) @ University of Oxford; Visiting Researcher (Computer Vision) @ MIT
In 2018, Alex's robotics company, Zippy, was acquired by GM Cruise and the team has now thrown its weight behind their incredible autonomous vehicle effort. He founded Zippy along with two co-founders in 2017; they built on-road delivery robots to bring food from restaurants to your door. From 2015-2017, he was head of Engineering at Kite, where they built an ML-powered programming copilot to bring all the programming knowledge on the internet into your favorite editor. From 2012-2015, he was building visual internal navigation systems for mobile devices at Flyby Media. The company was acquired by Apple and the technology became a central part of ARKit. Until 2012, he was a PhD candidate with the Active Vision Lab at Oxford University, working on robotics, computer vision, and SLAM.
