Silverpond at National Science Week!

Just a quick note that we’d love to see you drop by our booth at National Science Week! The event is Humans 2.0, and our booth should look somewhat like this:

As well as the Booth, Susie will be giving a talk!


My Work Experience, Experience.

Hello! My name is Tom, for the last week I have been working at Silverpond as a work experience initiative. This post describes a high school students outlook on programming and machine learning. Please enjoy!


Of code and cats ....

“You might as well apply, worst comes to worst they say no….” is what I told myself over 2 months ago when I was heading into a meeting to discuss the possibility of an internship at Silverpond. Many hours of coding (and even longer debugging sessions) I am scheduling handover meetings and having a hard time saying goodbye to one of the most welcoming offices I have worked at.


Interesting reads in Quantum Computing, Machine Learning and Ethics

Hello! I thought it might be nice to occasionally review a few interesting papers that have come across my desk, that were interesting in one way or the other.

Let’s take a look at an odd bunch that I was interested in.


AI + Architecture

Last week I gave a short talk at Grimshaw’s weekly Friday meeting (thanks for having us!).

The slides for the talk are here: AI + Architecture.

Mostly I wanted to highlight:


Responsible AI

What do you feair?

“You work in AI?” says the person with a look of disbelief and slight repulsion, physically recoiling away as if I am a carrier of the of the “Robot Apocalypse “ pathogen. This is a standard reaction for me when meeting someone for the first time and explaining what I do.


Digital Threads 2: Service Design in Fashion

Digital disruption has evolved the world of fashion beyond the realms of Paris runways and glossy magazines. Today, Fashion Tech is an emerging industry that includes wearable devices, digital threads, and technology platforms.

Whether it’s through online purchasing in the supply chain, the manufacturing process with 3D printing, or auxiliary services such as virtual sizing, technology has evolved a businesses’ touch points with customers in the world of fashion.

To ensure that companies are able to create positive digital experiences, employing Service Design principles can help connect the customer, design, and manufacturing of a product more seamlessly.


Silverpond and Skand Reduce the Cost of Asset Inspection by 80%

Since November 2017 we have been working hard with fellow Melbourne based company Skand, to reduce the risks and cost associated with roof inspections by entering Silverbrane, our Machine Learning tool, into their inspection process.

Together the teams have achieved a world first - Training Machine’s on 3D models. The results have been phenomenal, reducing the cost of inspection by 80%.

We have written a case study, detailing the approach taken and the results produced. If you have any questions or would like to request a demo of Silverbrane, please contact the Silverpond team.
