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.

The Future of Work II


For #CRESUM18 we have decided to continue in the direction we took last year and look deeper into the questions concerning the part of our lives where we spend most of our time awake, our work.

We will ask questions and hopefully provide answers.

Why is it that as little as one out of ten people are actually engaged in their job? Is it leadership or the workplace that create this or something else?

How does the ever increasing role of AI and robots impact us as humans? What are the creative opportunities, what new skills do we need and will there even be jobs for all of us?

To find answers to these questions and more, we have invited a number of speakers with expertise in these areas to share their stories.

Welcome to #CRESUM18.



We are extremely proud of our partners and the network that has been built since the first Creative Summit event took place in 2007. And we're always looking for new partners to work with, so if you have an interesting idea for a Creative Summit event or you'd like to learn more about how you can become a partner, please contact us.
