Speeches and Presentations

CEO / founder at TechEmergence, the only market research and company discovery platform focused exclusively on artificial intelligence and machine learning.

I’m of the belief that the most important ethical considerations of the coming thirty years will be the creation or expansion of sentience and intelligence in technology. My time is focused exclusively on this major concern. TechEmergence is intended first as a vehicle to proliferate an open-minded conversation about the implications and applications of AI . Business model came later, purpose was and is first.
