I’m Jamie and I like making things, both physical and digital, although you’re more likely to find my musings on films and film festivals here.
In my day job I’m the Head of Digital Technology at the Science Museum Group where amongst other things I look after the Online Collection which includes the objects and archives from The Science Museum (London), National Science and Media Museum (Bradford) and the Science and Industry Museum (Manchester).
I’m currently working on a AHRC funded research project investigating the practicalities and ethics of using Machine Learning and AI to build new connections between museum collections at scale. I am also a contributing member of the Museums and AI network.
Prior to entering the museum world I ran a technology company / digital agency called Kitsite where we developed products and websites for people like the London 2012 Olympics, Focus Features, Sony Playstation and job and travel sites for The Guardian and as well as our own CMS platform PostCMS. Before starting Kitsite I worked at the Guardian, where I helped launch guardian.co.uk at the dawn of the millenium.
