Winning: Grand Challenge place at Singularity University

I found out (on the day my son was born!), that I’d won one of two places on the Isle of Man Grand Challenge!

The Grand Challenge is an initiative being run by the Isle of Man Department of Economic Development and supported by Poker Stars which includes a 7-day placement at Singularity University as part of the Executive Program in December!

While there, we’ll be learning from some of the leading lights of the technology industry about biotech, AI/machine learning, nanotechnology and much more. It’s an amazing personal opportunity, and one which we hope can help inspire technological innovation on the Isle of Man.

I’ll be going with Owen Cutajar (also a winner) and will be reporting on what we learn and the amazing insights throughout the week.

More soon…
