Director and Founder
Ben provides leadership in our technical department. He has played a major role in most of our online collections - including for the National Portrait Gallery, MoMA New York, and Whitney Museum of American Art - and mobile app projects, in particular over a dozen apps produced for Dorling Kindersley.
He also works with archives, including at the Yiddish Book Centre, the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, and The National Archives (UK).
Ben has a degree in Philosophy and Artificial Intelligence from Sussex University. Ben joined Cogapp in 1987, and became technical director in time to help establish the new direction of the company towards the web and multimedia. Since then Ben has been responsible for the company's technical development. He was the chief architect and lead developer of Cogapp’s proprietary multimedia technology, used at the National Gallery of Art (Washington), the National Gallery (London) and many other institutions, and licensed to Microsoft to deliver numerous multimedia products.
Ben's work on these and other projects displays his continued commitment to finding new ways for organisations to exploit digital technology to better serve their public audiences. His current focus is on helping archives to enrich their offerings through combinations of human and machine intelligence.
