I help leaders serve their people better using AI, insight & innovation
The technologies Martin has developed provide some of the biggest shifts in human connection and creativity since the invention of the computer. With a focus on 'AI for Good', he has developed companies like Codec.ai (whose privacy-friendly AI-driven map of popular culture was acquired in 2023) and Metaphysic.ai (Time Magazine 100 Most Influential Business 2023 and the first company in the world to protect a person's 'likeness' online).
Martin Adams is a successful ethical-AI entrepreneur and thought leader. As an innovation advisor to CEOs, corporates, governments, and public figures around the world, he is an engine and advocate for those who believe technology can create deeper human connection
"I'm blessed to have built and exited numerous AI businesses over the last 20 years. I now provide the blueprint for how technology can be used by governments to create more productive countries, by companies to create more valuable organizations, and by individuals to live more interesting and richer lives.
I get a big kick out of helping people reimagine what is truly possible by bringing the world’s most explosive, exponential technologies to life in a real and human-sensitive way. I speak on the topics of AI, Generative AI, digital transformation, future of work, and marketing and innovation in the fields of government, technology, financial services, media, telecommunications, manufacturing, fintech, energy and more: recent keynotes include the European Commission, Oracle, Alan Turing Institute for AI, Telefonica, Aegis Insurance, Unilever, Deloitte, Arabian Business & Google.
I work with boards of directors, companies and governments who want to create impact but know it will only happen if they understand what technology makes possible, and how to change mindset.
When it comes to the mindset for innovation, I know what it’s like to be exhausted and frustrated as you try to drive innovation and digital transformation. Like you, I’ve tried to keep up with all the trends. I’ve been caught doing too many things at the same time and feeling completely drained. But now I can share my unique insights from working with the most innovative people and technologies in the world. I can help you identify the innovation that works for your company and your customers. And I draw from experience across AI and other exponential technologies to help you deliver on this now."
