Colm Flanagan

About

I am the Founder and Managing Director of Hiroco, a cutting-edge startup based in Sydney pioneering the future of planning optimisation tools. At Hiroco, we empower individuals and enterprises to harness and deploy their assets with unmatched efficiency. From trailblazing optimal route planning for delivery services to revolutionising the deployment of counter-weapon systems for heightened battlefield efficacy in Defence, our real-time solutions tackle an expansive array of challenges.

In 2022, I earned a doctorate in computer science from the University of New South Wales. My dissertation, "Episodic Memory for Cognitive Robots in Dynamic, Unstructured Environments", delved into training robots to discern and distinguish between different types of events. Through embedding observable and learnable contextual cues, my research focused on refining a robot's event recall capabilities, enabling more effective human-robot collaboration.
