A descriptive outlook of what the future of technology holds for us. Are we really ready for what we are creating? Do we know what is to come?

Hi my name is Tom Charman and I’m co-founder and CEO of KOMPAS, a travel application that uses artificial intelligence to suggest travel recommendations based on your personal interests and location at any given time. It's my third company, and I've always been interested in technology and it's use in everyday life. I fell in love with the idea of artificial intelligence when I started work on KOMPAS, as I immediately saw the opportunities generated as a result of the cutting edge technology. Machine learning is something I'm particularly interested in, and an area of technology that I can see growing a huge amount in the next few years. Aside from technology, I'm also passionate about helping young entrepreneurs, which is why I've worked with the iDEA award, Virgin StartUp and Stanford University Online, to try and help people take ideas to the next level.
