I'm an author, researcher and consultant in ethical AI. I am a doctoral researcher at Coventry University, and CEO of AI Prescience, a consultancy helping organisations use AI ethically and responsibly. I have over 30 years global experience using data and technology to improve business performance.
I write extensively on ethical use of AI and data in business, for both mainstream and academic audiences. My new book, "How Big Data Influences What We (Think) We Know", will be published by SAGE later this year
In business, I have worked with large corporates, start-ups and SMEs around the world, advising CEOs, Boards and Investors. This includes leadership roles at Accenture, Infosys and Wipro, managing business in the US, EU and Asia Pacific, running start-ups and raising funding.
For governments, I have briefed UK and Indian political leaders on technology industry policy. As a UK Government IT sector specialist, I advised Ministers and their teams on the global technology industry.
I graduated in Physics at Oxford and Computing at Coventry University. My AI and data science education is courtesy of Stanford, Johns Hopkins, Amazon and Google. I have been a guest lecturer at Oxford’s Saïd Business School, Cambridge’s Judge Business School, London Business School and IIT Madras.
An experienced speaker, I have chaired, participated in and spoken at numerous conferences and panel sessions. These include events for the IoD, NASSCOM, Financial Times and Governments of India and UK, as well as the inaugural World Economic Forum “Young Global Leaders” meeting, and the UK Prime Minister’s launch of London's Tech City.
Outside work, I can be obsessive about coffee, photography, classic Alfa Romeos and music!
