Global thought leader on all things tech


A global thought leader on the ever-changing world of technology, Nathaniel Calhoun is a sought-after speaker who specialises in the ethical and strategic implications of exponential technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Drones, and 3D Printing - he explains what the rapid change in technologies mean for business, government and society, providing insights into how we prepare and cope with the challenges and embrace the change?

Current work
Nathaniel has spent two decades in some of the world’s most challenging and fastest growing economies, where he works to roll out customised digital technologies and consults with governments, Fortune 100 organisations and social enterprise to design and implement policy to ensure innovations have the best chance of succeeding.

Nathaniel helps to guide the Singularity University based in San Francisco in its approach to changemaking and impact as a Co-Chair of its Global Grand Challenge Faculty.

Previous work
Nathaniel founded Code Innovation in 2009 to provide technological and consultative services to international aid and development organisations, such as UNICEF, and the Gates Foundation, specifically in the arenas of financial inclusion, business development, poverty alleviation, education and resilience building.

Nathaniel has customised keynotes, and workshops, focusing on governance, ethics, and new approaches to leveraging social technologies. He advises a number of start-ups that work in artificial intelligence, robotics, conservation and inclusion.

Now proudly based in New Zealand, Nathaniel is available to deliver his thought-provoking keynote addresses and workshops throughout Australasia.
