Alumni Meetup Panel


The study of computer science at University of Ljubljana is entering its fifth decade of existence. If computer science was an exciting novelty in the early seventies, it is now well established discipline and profession. As part of the next week's alumni meet up, we plan to organize a panel of alumni of Faculty of Computer and Information science of various generations to see how the study and the computer profession have changed over time. We are glad to announce an exciting line up of panel's participants. Andrej Kuščer is most well known as one of the four founders of Hermes Softlab (now ComTrade) that was the breeding ground of most Slovenian software developers. Later on he founded and led another well-known Slovenian software company Marg.

Jana Babnik Gomišček, Ph.D., has been a top manager at Slovenian subsidiaries of IBM and HP, advisor to the board and director of Brussels office at SRC, and vice-president of science and technology council of Republic of Slovenia.

Blaž Zupan, Ph.D., is a professor at FRI where he lectures about machine learning, data mining and decision support. He's a world class expert in applying data mining and AI techniques to the field of systems biology.

The final panel participant will be Andraž Tori, a cofounder and CTO of Zemanta, that all readers of this blog already very well know.
