“I wanted to say thank you for a well organised opportunity to meet with so many professionals in the creative industry. We have networked with some interesting people and could end up sponsoring a few companies as a direct consequence of the event.”
Jermaine Campbell

“Yet again, the WIRED event blew me away – not only some awe-inspiring speakers but where else would I get the chance to exchange ideas from innovators from so many different industries. I can’t recommend it highly enough. Roll on WIRED2014!”
Ian Connerton
Boots Opticians

“Thank you for these incredibly inspiring two days. I do attend quite a few conferences and I must say the Wired event undoubtedly topped every single one of them in 2013. Congrats for assembling such a line up of amazing speakers. Looking forward to next year!”

WIRED2015: SPEAKER INTERVIEWS

Here are our interviews with some of the game-changers who spoke at the event.

Meg SchwambMEG SCHWAMB: EVERYONE CAN EXPLORE MARS

“My collaborators and I are using 130,000 people around the world, working with them to help us explore Mars from the comfort of their homes.”

Martha Lane FoxMARTHA LANE FOX: HOW TECH CAN IMPROVE THE UK

“I want to paint a picture of how the UK can be a test lab for the rest of the world in having an incredibly gender-balanced workforce, and also the ability to tap into a completely different workforce and what that might do for other products and services.”

Alisee de TonnacALISÉE DE TONNAC: AN ‘OLYMPICS’ FOR GLOBAL STARTUPS

“I would really like it if when you think of Indonesia you think of the latest clean tech company rather than of forests being burnt. There are realities that are shocking and terrifying, but [to focus on them] really diminishes the potential and the power and the talent on the spot.”

Daniel McDuffDANIEL MCDUFF: READING EMOTIONS WITH COMPUTERS

“I think emotions being a part of our interactions with technology will actually allow us to spend less time looking at screens and more time behaving more naturally.”

Alex Sandy PentlandALEX “SANDY” PENTLAND: TAKING ACTION WITH BIG DATA

“I would like to encourage people to tackle the challenges presented by the data-driven economy. There is much we can benefit from this trend, but also a lot that can stand in our way if we don’t address it correctly.”

Fredrika GullfotWIRED2015 INNOVATION FELLOW FREDRIKA GULLFOT: MAKING OMEGA-3 WITH ALGAE

“One key driver of overfishing is the fish oil industry, for the production of omega-3 health supplements. … There is only one way to stop such a profitable industry: by offering a kick-ass alternative that makes the current practise obsolete.”

Antoine BlondeauANTOINE BLONDEAU: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IS EVOLVING

“What if we could scale AI to an unfathomable size, a size so big that it would leapfrog anything else out there and be able to solve some of the world’s most complex problems?”

Arthur KayWIRED2015 INNOVATION FELLOW ARTHUR KAY: TURNING WASTE COFFEE INTO ENERGY

“Advanced bio-fuels are the future. First-generation bio-fuels, in a world of food scarcity, are a redundant concept. The next generation of bio-fuels will come from all sorts of surprising quarters.”

Carlo RattiCARLO RATTI: DESIGNING THE FUTURE

“Design is the best way not to predict the future, but to help create it.”

Freeman OsonugaWIRED2015 INNOVATION FELLOW FREEMAN OSONUGA: THE FRONTLINE AGAINST EBOLA

“I’m optimistic that in the year 2016, Africa will be ebola-free. That in the next five years more rapid public health systems would be developed to prevent the slow response to ebola distress calls at the beginning of the outbreak, the failure of which now led to a global health emergency.”

Francis BitontiWIRED2015 INNOVATION FELLOW FRANCIS BITONTI: DESIGNING FASHION IN 3D

“Design is a bridge to help us figure out how to leverage and how to find value in manufacturing technologies.”

Elizabeth StokoeWIRED2015 INNOVATION FELLOW ELIZABETH STOKOE: THE SCIENCE OF CONVERSATION

“I’m going to show that talk isn’t messy or random, but highly systematic and organised. And it’s this organisation that enables us to discover the difference that single words and phrases can make to the outcome of encounters.”
