SPEAKER BIO

Gonçalo Abreu began programming computers when he was 6 years old on a ZX Spectrum 48K. Since then his passion for technology and building things has only increased. He started studying and developing skills on his own for several years (when there was no Google or YouTube yet!) and then got a degree in Computer Engineering. After working in tech companies for some time, Gonçalo took matters into his own hands and created MakeWise - a start-up that began as a consulting company developing turnkey projects and now creates disruptive products using Computer Vision and Machine Learning for Transportation, Logistics and Retail.
