Digital Tim’s Blog.

On this site I am sharing thoughts about how digital technology and creativity can be combined to help solve complex economic and social problems. In short, how to make the world a better place through digital technology.

I apply creativity with an understanding of business to help organisations overcome digital transformation challenges

Ideas that I am interested in include: artificial intelligence, big data, the internet of things, smart cities, collective intelligence and industry 4.0. These have the potential to transform society for the better, but also risk making it worse.

Feel free to add comments, I would also love to hear your ideas.

I have also argued that smart cities are an example of complex environments that require community involvement in design to achieve effective and impactful results.
