Data mining and creative research

Writing and speaking for the general public

I like writing for the general public, or at least for non academic audiences, and I regularly present at various conferences and events, or am interviewed on AI related topics. Partially it comes with my industry job, but I also think that whilst research and innovation is hard to stop, researchers and technologists have a responsibility towards the wider public to let them know what the opportunities but also what the potential risks are. And it can be suprisingly hard to write a simple article on relatively complex matters - harder than producing some academic papers.
