Volunteering

As we know that conferences & career fairs can be a bit daunting, we have decided to ensure that anyone coming along feels comfortable and gets the most out of their visit. As luck should have it the very wonderful UWE Women in Engineering group called Curiosity Connections offering us up some of their members to help out. We would like to say a bit thank you to them and look forward to ensuring everyone attending the event has a great time. We will start announcing our workshops shortly and also another group that are coming and we know our members are excited about …

Welcome to Graphcore

We are delighted that Graphcore will be at our Careers Fair on the 15th & 16th March 2019 and are looking to recruit/support. We know that, as being part of this careers fair, Graphcore are dedicated to ensuring they recruit from a diverse network and we are really pleased to have them on board as a Women’s Tech Hub member.

Graphcore has created a completely new processor, the Intelligence Processing Unit (IPU), specifically designed for machine intelligence. The IPU’s unique architecture means developers can run current machine learning models orders of magnitude faster. More importantly, it lets AI researchers undertake entirely new types of work, not possible using current technologies, to drive the next great breakthroughs in general machine intelligence. We believe our IPU technology will become the worldwide standard for machine intelligence compute. The performance of Graphcore’s IPU is going to be transformative across all industries and sectors, whether you are a medical researcher, roboticist or autonomous car manufacturer.

We are finally off and running with the Careers fair and are speaking to lots of great companies. The idea behind supporting our members has been in discussion for over a year so its great to finally put it into action. We are aware that there are many companies and agencies talking about diversity and inclusion but we have always been about doing and not just talking about it.

Our members already recognise that and rather than just sitting on panels and telling us that they agree with it, they’ve actually put some money behind it and supported us with implementing practical solutions. So we would like to say a big thank you to all our members whom we all hope to see at the fair (its part of the membership).

So thanks go to KETL, ALD, UltraSOC, Esoterix, Deloitte & Bud.

And a Big thanks to GRAPHCORE for coming aboard – we look forward to working with you! Anybody wanting to join the fair, which includes Women’s Tech Hub membership please mail us on info@tech3shed.org – or to speak to Women’s Tech Hub directly info@wthub.org.
