Each week I invite one of my speakers to talk about their life, work, passions and leisure so that you can get to know the person who is the speaker behind the mic.
My guest this week is an industry acclaimed A.I. Scientist, Tech Pioneer and Venture Partner at Deep Science Ventures, a venture-focused science institute where audacious entrepreneurial scientists explore solutions to the world’s challenges. She is an advisor to both the UK Parliament and the EU Technology Commission in matters of digitalisation and Big Data. Fortune and TIME have described her as one of Europe’s top talents in social engagement through technology, and FastCompany labelled her a “firestarter”. Please welcome Inma Martinez.
