Q&A with Ashley Welsh
Oh, there are so many; this is a hard one to answer. One of the most interesting would have to be when I was running a company that used stereoscopic cameras to capture 3-D point cloud data in public spaces. We analyzed the data in real time to identify when people stood at a specific location and served up interactive content tailored towards entertainment, infotainment, and advertising. Users were excited and engaged by the innovative product and they were able to interact by moving their hands and feet in free-space and by performing specific gestures.
Interpodia fosters a cooperative environment where you can make your role whatever you want as long as you’re working hard and adding value. My role has evolved quickly at Interpodia. After spending over 15 years building my repertoire of skills in technology project management, client services, and entrepreneurship, for the first time in my career I’m doing what I should be doing – working with an amazing team to create the technology that is best-in-class. Interpodia has helped my career innumerably.
Bring your A-game and expect to learn, grow and be challenged.
Right now, I am working on our new analytics and data extraction product for our clients, Interpodia Insights. It will allow our clients to more easily sort through and highlight insights from their organization’s database on the backend of our system.
I love to watch Ice Hockey, but for my own fitness I love to mountain bike around our headquarters here in North Vancouver.
