Calum Chace is an expert Keynote Speaker on Artificial Intelligence.

He focuses on the medium and long-term future impact of AI on us as individuals, societies, and economies.

He is the author of “Surviving AI” a concise, easy-to-read guide to what’s coming in our future. In this book he talks about technological unemployment (the economic singularity) and the possible creation of a superintelligence (the technological singularity).

His book ‘The Economic Singularity’ will help you think intelligently about what the future has in store for us. Calum believes that Artificial intelligence (AI) is overtaking our human ability to absorb and process information and robots are becoming increasingly dextrous, flexible, and safe to be around (except the military ones!). Since it is our most powerful technology, we must understand it.

Calum’s fascinating talks provide a brief historical look at the developments of the new world of deep learning AI, and he provides evidence for BOTH sides of the argument and guides audiences through his strange new world.

Ultimately he makes the case that AI can turn out to be the best thing that will happen to humanity, making our future wonderful almost beyond imagination. But, he cautions, our future welfare and prosperity depends on our determination to learn about and meet the challenges that AI presents head on.

After three decades of working with organisations such as the BBC, BP and KPMG during which he was a marketer, a strategist, and a CEO, he switched career gears to focus on one of his most intense interests: Artificial Intelligence.

Calum is also the author of Pandora’s Brain, and Pandora’s Oracle, a pair of novels about the promise and the peril of our increasing use of machines that are able to learn like humans.

Calum is a compelling debater, and is equally comfortable debating in virtual environments or in the real world!
