About Bryce

Bryce is an experienced start-up founder/executive, speaker, and consultant in AI, ethics, and innovation. He currently serves as Entrepreneur in Residence at the Department of Defense’s Innovation Unit and oversees projects leveraging machine learning and internet of things to drive disruptive change. He is Senior Contributing Scientist and Innovation Fellow at the Environmental Defense Fund, on the faculty of Singularity University and a research associate at the University of Oxford’s Internet Institute, where his work has been featured in over a dozen publications including Wired, Bloomberg, and New Scientist. His past consulting clients include Google and Blackstone.

Bryce is the co-founder of BlueOak Resources, a technology start-up backed by top tier investors (Kleiner Perkins, Waste Management) working to recover high value metals from electronic waste, the world’s fastest growing waste stream. As a senior executive and board member, Bryce was directly responsible for fundraising, business strategy, and all aspects of technology development on a first of its kind $50m facility in Osceola, Arkansas. In addition, Bryce was an Entrepreneur in Residence at the Angel Forum, Silicon Valley’s oldest and most prestigious group of early-stage angel investors, and Singularity University Labs.

Prior to BlueOak, Bryce co-founded Belooga Media, an education tech company that produced the #1 most downloaded education podcast on iTunes in 2009, worked for the X PRIZE Foundation, was a Research Associate at University of Oxford’s Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics and directed “A Line in the Sand”, a documentary about the post-9/11 militarization of the US-Mexico border. He has received numerous honors including Harvard Business School’s Best New Venture award (2011), Forbes’ “30 under 30: Energy & Industry” (2014) and World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneer (2016). He is a graduate of the University of Oxford (Clarendon Scholar), Deep Springs College and Singularity University and holds degrees in data science, politics, philosophy and economics.

Speaking Topics

  • Big Data and Beyond: AI for Enterprise

    The internet of things (IoT) is about a lot more than smart thermostats and connected cameras. In this talk, you’ll learn how IoT is bringing machine intelligence out of the box and into the world through the confluence of smart sensors, networked computing, big data and deep learning. The IoT revolution is disrupting industries ranging from manufacturing to healthcare, delivering billions of dollars in value today and trillions of dollars of value in the years to come. But who will be the winners, and who will be the losers? And will IoT be a technology of liberation, or domination?Topics will include: smart sensors and sensor fusion, networked computing, big data, artificial intelligence/ machine learning/deep learning, predictive maintenance, generative design, computer vision, autonomous systems, wearables, cyber warfare, machine deception.

  • Environmentalism’s Fourth Wave: AI For Sustainability

    AI is not only the most important technology of our time, it is also the greatest tool in our arsenal for tackling environmental global grand challenges. In addition to covering the fundamentals of AI, this talk will explain how the combination of sensors, networks and machine learning is allowing groups to monitor, predict and, ultimately, protect the environment like never before. Topics include: computer vision, small satellites, predictive maintenance, intelligent infrastructure, sensor fusion and ubiquitous intelligence.

  • Ethics for an Exponential Future

    Exponential technologies hold the power to transform our world and thus raise profound ethical questions about their use and the kind of world we should seek to create. This talk will introduce three distinct ethical traditions that provide frameworks for navigating ethical landscape: utilitarianism, deontology and virtue ethics. We will discuss emerging ethical issues arising from the development of self-driving cars, bioinformatics, internet of things, social networks and, more broadly, the rise of artificial intelligence.

  • Ethics for an Exponential Future

    Exponential technologies have fundamentally transformed our capacity to change the world. However our moral psychology, evolved over hundreds of thousands of years, has remained fundamentally the same. Thus the question: how can we ensure that our technological capacities do not exceed our moral capabilities?

    This talk will introduce audiences to the major schools of thought within the study of ethics and provide a framework for identifying, analyzing and acting upon ethical issues. This method will be illustrated through application to ethical dilemmas arising in artificial intelligence.

  • Intelligence Unboxed: The Internet of Things Revolution

    The internet of things (IoT) is about a lot more than smart thermostats and connected cameras. In this talk, you’ll learn how IoT is bringing machine intelligence out of the box and into the world through the confluence of smart sensors, networked computing, big data and deep learning. The IoT revolution is disrupting industries ranging from manufacturing to healthcare, delivering billions of dollars in value today and trillions of dollars of value in the years to come. But who will be the winners, and who will be the losers? And will IoT be a technology of liberation, or domination?Topics will include: smart sensors and sensor fusion, networked computing, big data, artificial intelligence/ machine learning/deep learning, predictive maintenance, generative design, computer vision, autonomous systems, wearables, cyber warfare, machine deception.
