About the lesson

My teaching approach comes from a genuine joy of seeing an IT student's eyes light up with understanding - at last! I always try to see things from the student's point of view.

I have helped many of all ages from 10 to 60 to understand areas of computing that have baffled them. Thus my decade-long professional experience in teaching computing to undergraduate university students, and postgraduate students - is only part of the picture.

I am known to be an excellent communicator - having given multiple TED talks on technology.

In computing terms I prefer to teach Python - but will teach other IT topics and languages, and will take on students who have no programming experience as well as those who do.

About Doctor-Alexis

I have a first-class Maths degree and two PhDs (one in computer music and one in artificial intelligence). I have over a decade's teaching experience and am an excellent communicator, having spoken frequently to the media and the public. I am currently a senior research fellow in computer music and work as a Python developer for the London International Screenwriting Competition. In the past I have worked as a programmer on Wall Street and in a tech start-up.

  • 01

    Can you tell us about your first experience using a computer?

    I was trying out an educational language LOGO and accidentally made it draw a star shape by using a loop. I was hooked for life!

  • 02

    What is the technological evolution that has marked you most and what will be, in your eyes, a turning point in this field?

    The advent of truly mobile
    computing (smartphones) changed everything. As a quantum computer programmer, I believe quantum computation may be a turning point as well.

  • 03

    Explain your expertise, your interest in it and, more broadly, its importance in the computer world.

    My expertise combines AI, programming and the internet. The internet is now so central that programming and internet programming are becoming almost synonymous. Amazon Web Services and other such providers are becoming the heart of this process. AI is central to so many computer services - deep learning is immensely powerful.

  • 04

    Do so-called 'visionaries', such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg inspire you or do you have other role models?

    They do inspire me, particularly Steve Jobs. He was a fairly unpleasant man at times, but very very good at his job. I'm also inspired by what is being done with Amazon Web Services by Jeff Bezos.

  • 05

    Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.

    My CV has benefited from the following rule: learn by doing as well as by studying. Because then at the end of it, you'll probably have a portfolio as well as a qualification.

  • 06

    What would you say to an uncomfortable person in front of a screen who says that "IT is too complicated"?

    IT is only complicated if your teacher is impatient, or the examples are irrelevant to you. It's less complicated than managing a virtual FIFA team, cooking a family dinner, driving a car or or organising a house move.

  • 07

    What are your other passions, related or non-related to computers?

    I love composing music by AI on computers and (as my profile picture demonstrates) I love to travel and see the world.

  • 08

    What makes you a Superprof in IT?

    The deeper your understanding, the simpler your explanation will be.
