In an absorbing discussion with ABP Board member Uzma Waseem, Robert shares his perspectives on the converging paths of data science, cognitive neuroscience, technology and business psychology in the pursuit of innovation.

Topics covered in this episode include: how technology can enhance working with neurodiversity; examples of fit-for-purpose innovation; and the role of business psychology in bringing transparency to increasingly complex predictive models.
Robert co-founded Arctic Shores, his second technology start-up, in 2014 with a grant from Innovate UK and since then the company has grown to support 150+ organisations in more than 50 different countries with offices in Manchester and London.
He studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford University and completed his MBA at Imperial, where he was a double prize winner.
