Nell Watson

Associate Faculty AI & Robotics, Singularity University

Nell's career in technology and entrepreneurship stems from a great early-age foundation she got from her engineer dad. By the age of 24, she was already teaching post-grad computer science. Soon afterwards she ventured into entrepreneurship, in various projects and ventures, in pursuit of lasting beneficial impact in the world.

In the process of maturing as an entrepreneur she has drifted into being a sought-after public speaker, facilitating a great many workshops, and delivering digestible yet informative lectures on emerging technologies to diverse audiences internationally.

Her work is regularly covered by Wired, BBC, The Guardian, Forbes, Vice, and others.

Nell has a core belief that technology can (and should) be leveraged to free us from the saddest aspects of the human condition. It is this same wellspring of passion that she seeks to ignite within others.
