I’m a freelance writer, specialising in technology and how it intersects with people and society. I have been fascinated with the digital evolution since covering the first DSLR cameras emerging on the market and enjoyed making technology accessible, turning long spec lists into engaging features.

I closely follow new developments and find the staggering rise of digital technology – especially artificial intelligence and machine learning – exciting and terrifying in equal measures. Likened to electricity or mined salt in its transformative potential, these technologies could vastly improve our lives as well as harm us.

Machine learning, for example, already shapes our daily lives, yet, most people understand little about it. I believe that becoming more digitally literate – from the nitty-gritty of cloud computing to the more philosophical concepts surrounding AI – is vital for individuals and society as a whole. We need to come together to find a way of making the most of the vast potential these technologies offer so that they benefit all because one thing is certain: The future is here.
