Way back when the iPod Touch was (briefly) the cutting edge of mobile technology, Jenny Griffiths spotted an opportunity to use images to search the web. She combined this with a love of fashion to create a pioneering engine which powers searches for high street fashion giants such as ASOS, TopShop and Gap. She started out wanting to be an artist - but became a computer scientist, pioneer of machine learning and computer vision, and was awarded an MBE for her services to digital innovation in the fashion industry. In this episode of Women Tech Charge, Jenny talks to Anne-Marie about her journey to STEM success, and why she's started speaking her mind on the issues that matter.
