The single most useful thing I learnt on my Artificial Intelligence MSc was how to learn. It’s a skill that has helped me considerably in my career, perhaps even shaped it. I’d argue this skill above all others is professionally the most important one I have. It started as I was being taught Knowledge Engineering […]

If you’re visiting London I recommend popping into the British Museum. There’s an enormous collection of artefacts from around the globe that have somehow found their way in to their hallowed halls. If you do go it’s generally better to get there earlier in the day as the queues can build up quite quickly, helped […]

Occasionally I delve into the world of Graphic Design. I won’t claim to be a graphic designer, but I do enjoy creating art that I find enjoyable, even if others do not. Over time I’ve improved and I’ve reached the point where I’m comfortable enough sharing my creations. Some time ago Serif released its Affinity […]

There’s something almost stereotypical about this scene: two Japanese ladies in Kimonos, shielding themselves from the high summer sun with umbrellas.

Payment Protection Insurance has been one of the UK’s big financial scandals of the 21st Century. The methods used to sell it were unethical and illegal. Banks racked up 80 per cent commission rates on policies purchasers couldn’t always claim on, were overpriced and sold as a condition of a loan or mortgage being taken […]

There are times when architecture and art come together. Sometimes it’s the entire building that’s striking and beautiful. Sometimes it’s in the details. This building exemplifies this in my mind. During the day it’s a rather dull affair, but at night the way the lights pick out the curves and bring it to life.

I’ve pretty much shut Trump out of my feeds because he’s become largely irrelevant – but today’s support for Britain First’s narrative hit a nerve. I get the US has it’s first amendment and culture of “freedom of speech”. It’s not something we enjoy in the UK, but there you go. But Trump isn’t a […]
