At Xero, we are on a mission to find ways to make our accounting software smarter. Rather than just seeing the data that you entered presented back to you in a clean, beautiful format, our algorithms can use what they know to save you entering it in the first place. Our technology won’t just collect information: it’ll learn from what it stores. Ultimately this will turn the boring and the mundane into an automated process - giving our customers more time to focus on what’s important for them.

Come along and hear Dr Kathryn Hempstalk, Xero's Machine Learning guru (aka Senior Data Scientist at Xero) talk about our journey so far. Kathryn will share what insights there have been, opportunities and possibilities in the future, as well as lessons learned along the way.

We are running this event in our Wellington and Auckland offices during Techweek, please register to attend.


Dr Kathryn Hempstalk has an extensive background in machine learning, artificial intelligence and data science. She studied computer science at Waikato university where she gained a doctorate in 2009. Since then she’s worked as a researcher and data scientist in a variety of industries.
