Somdip Dey

Embedded Artificial Intelligence Scientist & AI Music Producer, University of Essex
Somdip Dey, FRSA, also professionally known as InteliDey, is an Embedded Artificial Intelligence scientist, engineer, entrepreneur, AI art & music creator and TED speaker. Dey is the CEO of Nosh Technologies, the CTO of Blockway Technologies, a Lecturer of Computer Science at the University of Essex, and a Lecturer of Data Science at the York St John University. He is also the Danah Zohar Professor of Quantum Philosophy & Professor of Practice (AI/ML) at Woxsen University, India. He has more than 13 years of industrial experience including working for Microsoft and Samsung in developing technological products that are currently used by billions of users in different ways. For contributions to improving society through applications of embedded machine learning Dey is elected a Life Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, named an MIT Innovator Under 35, an Outstanding Achiever in Education, Science & Innovation at the 2023 India UK Achievers Honours and a 2022 World IP Review Leader.

Dey was born on December 13, 1990, in Kolkata, India. Dey is the only child of a painter mother, Soma Dey, and a commercial artist father, Sudip Dey. He attended South Point High School in Kolkata, India and went to study bachelor's in Computer Science at St. Xavier's College, Kolkata, where he graduated with a first-class degree (2012). After graduating with a Computer Science degree Dey pursued a career of an engineer, a scientist and an entrepreneur. In 2012, Dey invented a digital QR authentication system that was adopted by institutes around the world to stop the generation of fake degree certificates.

In 2013, he moved to the U.K. to pursue a master's study and while pursuing his MSc at the University of Manchester in 2014, his parents had a car accident that made him the family's sole breadwinner. Sending money to his family to support them left Somdip with an empty bank account and he was left to collect food waste from dumpsters. This led him to co-found Codeepy, a start-up committed to co-developing the world's first crowd food-sharing platform, which was made open source. It won the 3Scale API Award at the Koding's 2014 Global Hackathon & inspired entrepreneurs around the world to develop similar solutions.

In 2020, when the pandemic took over the world and people started to overbuy groceries to adapt to the changing shopping schedule, it ran the risk of increased food wastage at home. Dey co-developed an award-winning AI powered food management app - nosh - to help users reduce food waste in the household. In 2021, Dey co-founded Nosh Technologies (nosh tech inc. - US & Nosh Tech Ltd. - UK), which provides the nosh app solution to reduce food waste at home, and he also assumed the role of the CEO & Chief Scientist of the company.

In 2022, Dey co-developed a machine learning based platform to reduce scams and malicious behavior in blockchain projects while empowering on-chain marketing. This led him to cofound Blockway Technologies (Blockway Tech Inc.).

Dey is a member of the technical program committee and reviewer of several top technical conferences on Artificial Intelligence and Electronic Design Automation fields such as AAAI, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, ASAP, IEEE EdgeCom, IEEE CSCloud, etc. He is also an editor of numerous academic journals.

Sonam Thakchoe

Senior Philosophy Lecturer, University of Tasmania
I hold a PhD in Indo-Tibetan Buddhist philosophy from the University of Tasmania (2003), Masters's Degree (Acharya) in Advanced History, Philosophy and Hermeneutics in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism with a double major from the Central Institute of Higher Tibetan Studies (CIHTS, 1998) and a Bachelors Degree (Shastri, 1996). I am one of the very few Australasian scholars in the field—and, indeed, the only Asian-born philosopher with significant experience in an in-depth study of Indo-Tibetan philosophy in close collaboration with Western colleagues. I am making significant contributions to research in this field at the University of Tasmania, and my work has received international recognition. I am the key person in the Philosophy Program at the University of Tasmania responsible for research activities on the topics of Asian philosophy, particularly Buddhist philosophy. I am one of a small coterie of researchers in the field of Buddhist philosophical studies in Australia, and my research activities have significantly contributed to the internationalisation of the research culture of the School of Humanities at UTAS. Previously dominated by the Western Continental and Analytic philosophical traditions, the style of thinking and research focus in the School has now transformed into a significantly more expansive cross-cultural, interdisciplinary philosophical exchange by way of integrating the philosophical methods of Asian, comparative and intercultural thought.

Sophie Hocking

Lecturer in Biosciences, Swansea University
I am a lecturer in Biosciences at Swansea University and an early-career researcher specialising in plant ecology, conservation and invasion ecology.

My research at undergraduate and master's level focused on plant conservation, investigating the ecology of nationally scarce plants such as marsh pea, the rare and endemic dune gentian, as well as the endangered fen orchid.
My PhD investigated the environmental impacts of Japanese knotweed and its management, and how best practice can be enhanced through integration with the wider environment and community ecology to aid post-treatment restoration. By applying ecological theory to knotweed invasion, I try to develop understanding of potential restoration methods for habitat recovery, involving a large-scale restoration field trial.
I have also studied the impacts of knotweed management on the soil microbiome using eDNA metabarcoding, and am interested in the true sustainability of these management methods, using life cycle assessment (LCA) to evaluate their wider environmental impacts with the aim of enhancing management efficacy and mediating human impacts on the environment.
