The AI Dinner is a small private networking event organised for anyone with an interest in Artificial intelligence, by Digital Entrepreneur.

We have been meeting at the Mercer Street Hotel, Covent Garden once a month since March 2019 to network, discuss and debate everything #AI.

How A.I. will shape the future of work with Maarten Ectors (ex Chief Innovation Officer at Legal & General)

The next £1B company will be run by three people! Is this the future of business and how will it work?

In this dinner, Maarten Ectors will talk about how A.I. and other disruptive technoligies will shape the future of work for everyone. Maarten is a multi-award winning innovator who has been launching disruptive technology ventures for decades.

Ectors has held several key positions at major technology companies, including Nokia, Canonical (the company behind Ubuntu), and Legal and General. At Nokia he built the first telecom, cloud and IoT incubator and as VP of IoT at Canonical, he launched the company’s IoT business.

At Canonical, Ectors reported into the 2nd space tourist, Mark Shuttleworth and was mentored by Simon Wardley.

At Legal and General, he served as the Chief Innovation Officer launching the:

  • World’s first reinsurance on blockchain

Ectors has also been an active participant in the technology startup ecosystem. He has served as a mentor, advisor, and investor for a number of technology startups, and has helped to launch several successful ventures.

In addition to his work in the corporate world, Ectors is a sought-after speaker and commentator on technology and innovation. He has spoken at major technology conferences around the world and has been quoted in numerous publications, including Forbes and the Wall Street Journal.

Ectors’ expertise and thought leadership have earned him a number of accolades and awards throughout his career.

Always ahead of the curve, Ectors focused on IoT and Cloud in 2010, AI in 2012 and Blockchain in 2016 and is now bringing together all of these revolutionary changes to create a vision of how the future of business will work.

It’s going to be quite a meal!
