Odgers Berndtson hosted Sir Mark Walport (UK Government Chief Scientific Adviser and Head of the Government Office for Science) for an inspiring talk at the CityVision 2030 event hosted by Odgers Berndtson.

Mark said his job is to advise the government on policy for all aspects of science, engineering, technology, and social science.

In a delightful interview with 11:FS Co-Founder Simon Taylor, he discussed artificial intelligence, ethics and technology, data and privacy, and more.

“There are many other areas where industry has the potential to progress faster if they work together in a pre-competitive environment. Of course, one of the issues is around the sharing of data,” he says.

“It’s possible to share data in ways that don’t threaten the integrity of businesses. That’s about defining access and giving people access in a way that critically protects privacy.”
