The Conversation with Brennon Williams


Brennon refers to Daniel Kahneman's work. (Thinking Fast and Slow)

What is Cognitive Artificial Intelligence and where does it appear in our lives?

What part do emotions play in this? The importance of context in understanding.

"In developing this sort of technology, I learn more about myself."

How Brennon ended up in this field and setting up IRS. http://www.isrcorp.co.uk/

How Brennon built his team by bringing in the "Chiefs" first.

What did his team do the first time they met face to face?

The importance of trust. "Great people love their job, they love what they do and will always try to do more that's expected. You've got to give people that trust and that freedom to expand and work at their best, wherever that is."

Will Brexit affect the sector that Brennon works in?

The development of AI in the future of work and the benefits to society.

Security and privacy.
