I’m a product manager, entrepreneur, academic, developer and designer, ruminating on AI and the future of the internet. I created a technology called Scout that offers real-time virtual assistance while browsing online. You can see a demo of it in action by visiting my personal website.
To build it I spent 4 years developing, fundraising, hiring, firing, testing and designing. I use this blog to write about what went right and what went wrong, and what I learned from it. So far, I've written about:
- A speculative vision for a conversational web browser that chats to you and assists you while you're online
- A guide for winning an Innovate UK grant
- 8 Tips for Getting Started with Entrepreneur First
- The concept of the web browser acting as a GPS for the web
- Life after the search engine
- My PhD thesis on Dynamic Information Retrieval
The concept sprung from my 5 years of research into dynamic information retrieval at UCL and Microsoft Research, and I started working on it with Andrew O’Harney who I met on Entrepreneur First. You should also check him out too, he’s great.
