Carl Aylen Biography


Carl Aylen  View Works

Dr. Aylen is an engineer-mathematician, and former professor at Cambridge University where he was a contemporary of the late Stephen Hawking.

As a research fellow, Dr. Aylen developed mathematical algorithms for the analyses of stress resulting from supersonic shock waves. These algorithms were used in the design of both the Concorde and the British Fibreglass Minesweepers.

Subsequently, Dr. Aylen invented the Photo-Optic credit card system. This system was the first to use sophisticated algorithms for transactional security and was used throughout parts of Europe for many years prior to the development of the magnetic strip credit card.

Dr. Aylen has appeared regularly as a guest both on British Television and as a Member of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Panel on matters related to technological innovation.

For many years, he specialized as a corporate reconstruction expert. In this role, he advised members of Margaret Thatcher’s Cabinet and was involved in the reconstruction of a number of well-known organizations including International Computers, Dunlop, Lloyds of London, British Steel, and British Coal, to name but a few.

Subsequently, he invented and developed Talent Chaser, an Artificial Intelligence Platform which uses mathematical algorithms to help a global roster of clients to improve the way in which they shortlist job applicants.

He is the originator of algorithmic abstractionism, a unique mathematical process that ablates order out of chaos. Many of the abstract art drawings displayed here were influenced by this methodology. Dr. Aylen uses no mechanical or computer-based aids in the production of his drawings, all of which are produced entirely by hand.
