He last joined us on a panel discussion on the topic of AI in front of an audience of 110 high-growth companies from the Grow London Global programme, where he shared all his expertise on the topic. not only very informative but downright inspiring. Matthew’s ability to break down complex concepts into digestible nuggets is impressive, and his passion for the subject is contagious!

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Matthew Blakemore at World Summit AI 2023 in Amsterdam, and his contributions truly stood out.

As the chair of our Deep Dive Tech Talks and moderator for the Fireside Chat on Computer Vision, Matt skillfully guided discussions, ensuring they were both insightful and engaging for everyone involved. His presentation on ‘Is your data Oscar-worthy for AI deployment?’ was another standout moment, offering a thought-provoking perspective on the crucial role of data in the AI landscape.

I wholeheartedly recommend Matt for his expertise, effective moderation, and engaging presentation style. It was a pleasure working alongside him at the conference.
