Calum Chase at the Digital Agenda Cyprus Summit

The author and AI mentor is scheduled to speak at the annual Digital Agenda Summit on October 17th


Calum Chase is a best-selling writer and sought-after speaker on artificial intelligence. He focuses on the medium- and long-term impact of AI on all of us as individuals, societies and economies.

His non-fiction books on AI are The Economic Singularity, about the prospect of widespread technological unemployment, and Surviving AI, about the likelihood of strong AI and superintelligence. Calum is also the author of Pandora's Brain, a techno-thriller about the first superintelligence. He runs a blog on the subject at

Before becoming a full-time writer and speaker, Calum had a 30-year career in journalism and business, in which he was a marketer, a strategy consultant and a CEO. He maintains his interest in business by serving as chairman and coach for a selection of growing companies. In 2000 he co-wrote The Internet Startup Bible, a business best-seller published by Random House.

Calum studied philosophy at Oxford University where, many years ago, he discovered that the science fiction he had been reading since boyhood was actually philosophy in fancy dress.

Calum Chace has been invited as one of the keynote speakers at the Digital Agenda Cyprus Summit 2023, scheduled to take place on 17 October at the Nicosia Municipal Theatre.

The 6th Digital Agenda Cyprus Summit 2023, centered around the theme "The New Normal," will address contemporary issues impacting humanity at the local and regional levels. It will cover topics like artificial intelligence, the evolving work environment, toxic communication, climate change in daily life, the better-late-than-never electrification of the automotive sector in Cyprus, the challenges in achieving energy self-sufficiency, and the interconnectedness of mental and physical health. Additionally, diversity will be emphasized as the new norm. This prominent conference in Nicosia promises to be the largest gathering for exploring new-age perspectives.

The Digital Agenda Cyprus Summit is made possible through the support of Cyta and the Bank of Cyprus.
