Dr Andy Edmonds, PhD , DARL AI Online
Dr Andy Edmonds founded the UK’s first AI company in the 80s. His next venture was a company using AI to generate financial trading systems that was ultimately purchased by the world’s biggest futures trading organisation. After a period as the CEO of a US publicly traded company he started developing general purpose AI tools for sale to other companies as infrastructure, creating a natural language processing tool used as the core IP for the UK’s leading regtech company. He attained a PhD in 1996 in the junction of AI, chaos theory and time series prediction. His current interests are AI systems that can explain themselves, and autonomous enterprises – i.e. trading companies with minimal or no human intervention.
