Pete Trainor is an author, applied Artificial Intelligence designer, technologist, accidental polymath, mental health campaigner and CEO of Vala Health. He talks all over the world on creative and social technologies, data, Ai and the physiological and psychological effects on their audiences.

His recently published, bestselling, book “Human-Focused Digital” takes a philosophical look at technology and design, challenging us to look inwardly at the self when designing future technologies.

Over the last three years, Pete has helped to pioneer an entirely new approach to Ai focused products, one that looks at ‘self-evolving systems’ and ‘minimum viable personality’ to help solve societal and human issues.
