Dr Jamie Shotton FREng
Chief Scientist, Wayve
Dr Jamie Shotton has brought real-time computer vision technology to successful production while expanding the state-of-the-art, recognised by numerous academic and industrial awards. His work on Kinect for Xbox 360 was the first real-time human body tracking system, and Kinect was the fastest-selling consumer product ever at launch. He then led the team that delivered another world first: hand tracking in Microsoft HoloLens 2, an untethered augmented reality headset. He was part of the winning team for the MacRobert Award in 2011 and won an Academy Silver Medal in 2020.
