Greg Detre co-founded Memrise.com with Ed Cooke in 2008, blending the art and science of memory to power incredibly effective, social and playful online learning experiences. Featured in The Guardian, Wired, The Independent and elsewhere, Memrise has just passed a million users, raised $5m in VC from some of the top investors in the world, and is successfully helping people learn 10 times faster than staring at a textbook across 100+ languages.
In 2012, Greg left Memrise to travel around Asia. In 2013, he rebooted as a data scientist at The Guardian and got married.
He is very excited to have started as Chief Data Scientist at Channel 4 in London.
