Former Lastminute.com CTO joins AI agency
The former tech boss of Lastminute.com has joined the former head of data science at ASOS to launch a new artificial intelligence agency called Jed.ai
Dominic Cameron has joined the advisory board of Jed.ai – a cutting edge AI agency founded by Jedidiah Francis, who founded the data science team at fashion giant ASOS and spearheaded the development of its personalisation solutions strategy.
Jed.ai aims to revolutionise the way businesses approach AI and machine learning.
"Our vision is to transform how companies build technology products – which is much more time consuming than it needs to be," Francis said.
"Currently, it can take larger organisations between 6 -18 months to develop a new product. With our platform, we aim to reduce this to 6 - 8 weeks, enabling companies to drastically increase productivity and reduce risk associated with investing in technology."
Cameron was one of the founding members of Lastminute.com, where he built the company's first engineering organisation and architecture.
In 2006, he became managing director of ITV.com and helped establish the channel as the first and largest ad-funded UK streaming-video site.
"He is a leader in digital transformation and information technology, having spent 20 years working with some of the world’s biggest brands," Francis added.
"The depth of his experience and insight is invaluable second to none and we are excited to have the opportunity to work with him."
Cameron said: "As CTO and adviser I have been deploying machine intelligence teams on real-world commercial projects since 2014
"I'm so excited to now join Jedidiah and his team at Jed.ai, whose deep skills and experience are being brought to bear on challenging and impactful solutions, and opening my own eyes to boundless new possibilities."
