Artificial intelligence: Do not fear the robot revolution

International Business Times

I'm Principal Business Consultant at BrightStarr. In and outside of work, I regularly write about design, technology, innovation and business change for publications including The Independent, Big Issue magazine, spiked, the Guardian, Blueprint, netimperative, and CMS Wire.

Along with my writing, I regularly produce, speak and chair debates in Europe and America to students, businesses and at privately organised seminars including at the Cheltenham Science Festival and for the Battle of Ideas festival. Topics include innovation, privacy, Internet-of-Things, 3D printing, manufacturing, big data, architecture, risk vs ambition, blue-skies thinking, infrastructure and investment, and all aspects of design.

I am co-author of BIG POTATOES: The London Manifesto for Innovation, and was the convenor of its off-shoot: The Manifesto for Designworkgroup. If you would like to know more, or to commission me to speak or write for you, please get in touch.
