Timandra Harkness
Presenter, Writer & Comedian

I speak with authority, intellectual rigour and humour to varied audiences, about the futureBig Data, AI & robots, and other topics relating science and technology to the wider questions of human life.

You can watch my recent TedX talk: What is Knowledge in the Age of Big Data?

I am Visiting Fellow (Knowledge Exchange) in Big Data, Information Rights and Public Engagement with the Centre for Information Rights at the University of Winchester, a fellow of the Royal Statistical Society and a member of their working group on Data Ethics. I have a BA in Film & Drama with Art & Art History, and a B Sc in Mathematics & Statistics.

I'm also a very experienced host, chair, and Mistress of Ceremonies of anything from cabarets to bilingual panels on the future of robotics.

My favourite events are those where speakers and audience challenge each others' - and their own - ideas with frank discussion. My natural habitat is among dissenting adults in public.
