Public Speaking

AI can seem complicated, confusing, or even scary. I help people see it as simple, exciting, and inspiring.

Some people think AI is a complex technology that doesn’t concern them and just Google engineers can understand. Some even think it’s a scary technology that will ruin us all.
This is far from true. AI is one of the most powerful technologies we ever had available, and it’s surprisingly democratic. As you don’t need to be a mechanical engineer to drive a car, you don’t need to be a PhD in computer science to understand AI and be inspired by its potential.
This is the mind shift that I help people do: I help them see what AI is, and how it’s shaping our society. Then I inspire them to know more and embrace it in their professional development.
If you want to get people to see one of today’s most powerful and controversial technologies in a different light, I can help you.

I have a track record of speaking to thousands of people in different contexts, ranging from Universities like Harvard, corporate events at P&G and Merck, and conferences with up to 60.000 participants like the European Utilities Week in Amsterdam.

They say about me:

  • "You’re so far the only person I can listen to for hours and still be focused because of the passion you have for this subject. Thank you for the inspiration and hope to see you again."

  • "You opened up a world that was right in front of my eyes, but which I still hadn't stopped to look at :)
    Thanks Gianluca."
