Hello, my name is Jakob Aungiers - I am a software developer and data scientist specialising in artificial intelligence/machine learning. I am also an entrepreneur and competitive skydiver in search of the next big adventure life has to offer.

I was raised with a Czech nationality in Germany and came to live in the UK when I was 7. I hold a Masters degree in Computer Science from the University of Southampton's world renowned Electronics & Computer Science department.
