Richard Allen Young


Research Engineer


IBM Research - Africa Johannesburg, South Africa


I am a software developer with a passion for problem solving. I love building web applications, trying out new technologies and tinkering with electronics and IoT devices. I consider myself somewhat of a polyglot programmer and have worked on systems that do everything from calculating optimal pizza toppings to teaching languages in the classroom using AI. I have been at IBM Research since 2018 where I am helping to deliver innovative solutions to some of Africa's biggest challenges.
