How the automated world will work – reshaping business, society and the global economy

With the advent of AI some of the most fundamental questions that humanity has ever pondered now desperately need to be answered.  What does it mean to be human?  How do we make ethical decisions?  What should we do if we don’t have to work?  How do we govern ourselves in an automated world?    Daniel isn’t convinced that the global economy is resilient enough to adapt to what AI will bring in the next few decades.  Today he ponders what needs to change for it to become so. In doing so he presents a framework for understanding what AI is and how it will impact business and society. Looking towards the middle of the century, he examines the drivers of innovation; how organisations are restructuring to utilise AI technologies and how the decisions they make will impact the way the world works.

Daniel has been CEO of Satalia since 2008 and, since 2014, the Director of University College London’s Business Analytics MSc.  In both roles he is committed to pushing the boundaries of data science, optimisation and AI to solve the industry’s most pressing problems.  He has a Masters and Doctorate in AI from UCL, lectures in computer science and business, and is passionate about how technology can be used to govern organisations and bring positive social impact.  He is the co-founder of ASI Data Science, has advisory and executive positions in several companies and holds an international Kauffman Global Entrepreneur Scholarship.  In each of his eclectic roles he is an active promoter of positive entrepreneurship and technology innovation.
