Lydia Nicholas

Lydia is a digital anthropologist whose work explores data, culture, and how people use new technologies to solve problems and to develop and share knowledge. She spends part of the week in the Futures team at Nesta, the UK's innovation foundation, where she focuses on transparency and justice in the government's use of artificial intelligence, and how citizens and researchers can work together to make better use of health data.

Lydia has also worked with the Wellcome Trust, the BBC, the Science Museum and UK government, exploring how new technologies will affect how we live and work through workshops, research papers, developing future scenarios and science fiction. She is most interested not just in how emerging technologies work but how they change our values and culture, how we can intervene and make conscious, collaborative decisions about the world we want to live in.

Communication in the era of cyborgs & algorithms

We live in a time where our ways of communicating have changed dramatically in a very short time. Of course, this will not stop. With all new technology that will be embedded in our society and even in our bodies, we quickly move forward to a world where the outcome is still unknown.

What we do know is that this will open up a world where we will communicate in new ways, this will change how we communicate, offer services and live our day to day both in our physical and virtual life.

We believe that this year’ s Creative Summit will bring you insights that you can use when forecasting how both you and your organization will interact with both your fellow colleagues and clients in the future.
