He retired in 2019 as Professor and Principal Research Investigator in the School of Education, Communication and Language Sciences at Newcastle University, UK.He conducted the Hole in the Wall (HIW) experiment, where in the year 1999 a computer was embedded within a wall in an Indian slum at Kalkaji, Delhi and children were allowed to freely use it. The experiment aimed at proving that kids could be taught computers very easily without any formal training. Sugata termed this as Minimally Invasive Education (MIE). The experiment has since been repeated at many places. He is the recipient of many awards from India, the UK, USA and many other countries in the world.His interests include Children’s Education, Remote Presence, Self-organising systems, Cognitive Systems, Physics and Consciousness. The Hole in the Wall experiment has left a mark on popular culture. Indian diplomat Vikas Swarup read about Mitra's experiment and was inspired to write his debut novel that went on to become the Oscar winning movie of 2009 - Slumdog Millionaire. He is a PHD in Physics credited with more that 25 inventions in the area of cognitive science and educational technology. He was conferred the prestigious Dewang Mehta Award from the Government of India for Innovation in Information Technology in the year 2003. Amongst many other awards, he was awarded the 1 million dollar TED Prize in 2013.Starting with molecular orbital computation in the 1970s, Sugata Mitr discovered that the structure of organic molecules determine their function more than the constituent atoms. After a Ph.D. in Solid State Physics from the IIT, Delhi, he went on to research energy storage systems, first at the Centre for Energy Studies in the IIT and then at the Technische Universität, Vienna, Austria. This resulted in a new design for Zinc-Chlorine batteries. His interests in the flow of electricity through biological systems, a consequence of his Ph.D. research on exciton dissociation in organic semiconductors, led on to a seminally speculative paper on why the human sense organs are located where they are.His interest in computer networking led him towards the emerging systems in printing in the 1980s. Sugata Mitr set up India’s first local area network based newspaper publishing system in 1984 and went on to predict the desktop publishing industry. This in turn led to the invention of LAN based database publishing and he created the “Yellow Pages” industry in India and Bangladesh.His interest in the human mind once again led him into the areas of learning and memory and he was amongst the first in the world to show that simulated neural networks can help decipher the mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease. He was amongst the first people in the world to invent Voluntary Perception Recording (a continuously variable voting machine) and a hyperlinked computing environment, several years ahead of the Internet.Professor Mitra’s work at NIIT created the first curricula and pedagogy for that organisation, followed by years of research on learning styles, learning devices, several of them now patented, multimedia and new methods of learning. Culminating and, perhaps, towering over his previous work, are his “hole in the wall” experiments with children’s learning. Since 1999, he has convincingly demonstrated that groups of children, irrespective of who or where they are, can learn to use computers and the Internet on their own using public computers in open spaces such as roads and playgrounds. He brought these results to England in 2006 and invented Self Organised Learning Environments, now in use throughout the world. In 2009, he created the Granny Cloud, of teachers who interact with children over the Internet.Since the 1970s, Professor Mitra’s publications and work has resulted in training and development of perhaps a million young Indians, amongst them some of the poorest children in the world.In 2013, he was awarded the first $1 million TED prize, to put his educational ideas together to create seven laboratories called ‘Schools in the Cloud’. Here he studied learning as emergent phenomena in an educational self-organising system. These results question the ideas of curriculum, examinations and the meaning of ‘knowing’ itself in the Internet world of the 21st century.The effects of Sugata Mitra’s work on the lives of people and the economy of the countries can only be guessed at.

His artwork explores identity, human perception, the connection between sight and sound and the use of artistic expression via new sensory inputs.In 2010 he co­-founded the Cyborg Foundation with Moon Ribas, an international organisation that aims to help humans become cyborgs, defend cyborg rights and promote cyborg art. In 2017 he co-founded the Transpecies Society, an association that gives voice to people with non-human identities, defends the freedom of self-design and offers the creation of new senses and new organs in community.

He is also a non-resident senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Foresight, Strategy, and Risks Initiative, where he studies the intersection of cities, technology, climate change, and national security.Greg is the co-author of Aerotropolis: The Way We’ll Live Next. Aerotropolis are cities built around airports to take advantage of a hyper-competitive global economy. They are rising around China, India, and the Middle East as each region prepares to take its place on the world stage. They are to our era of instant gratification – the Instant Age – what terminal cities like downtown Chicago and Manhattan were to America’s Gilded Age in the latter half the 19th Century. Nowadays the air travel and the transportation are the ones responsible for the shape and scope – and winners and losers – of globalization.In addition to his work with NewCities, Lindsay is also director of strategy for LA CoMotion — an annual mobility festival in the Arts District of Los Angeles — and a visiting scholar at New York University’s Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management. In these capacities, he has worked with Intel, Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Aspen Institute, and the Regional Plan Association to envision the future of autonomous vehicles.Greg Lindsay is also Urbanist-in-Residence at BMW MINI's URBAN-X — a startup accelerator aimed at solving the toughest urban challenges through entrepreneurship.

We have to look into the past if we hope to understand the present or anticipate the future. Sometimes you need to do more than just imagine what’s going to happen. Sometimes you need to know. If you need to make decisions that prepare your company for the changes looming over your industry, preempt a new policy, or keep you ahead of the next few years of technological development, you need an expert.

Our speakers on futurism and technology will help you understand where the world is going and what the latest trends are. More importantly, they’ll help you understand why those changes are happening. If you’ve ever felt that it’s difficult keeping pace with accelerating technological development, or that the present is slipping out of your hands, it might be time to talk to someone in the know. Sometimes, the best way to approach the future is to welcome it, and to listen to the experts and gurus who know how to prepare for what is to come.

Our speakers can address the tremendous ethical and economic challenges posed by artificial intelligence and its impact on the future of work. They can describe the transformation of urban metropolises into Smart Cities, the data-driven evolution of 21st-century businesses, the changing nature of leadership, the motivation and retention of millennial consumers, and the exponential growth of disruptive technologies that will affect all of our lives. And that’s just an introductory sampling; their expertise covers the full range of topics in futurism and technological development.

We might not be able to predict the future in its entirety, but Aurum’s speakers are specialized and prepared to discuss upcoming developments in their fields. They offer a trip to the future without leaving the present, a visit to a tomorrow still full of questions. They are people like Michio Kaku, the world-renowned theoretical physicist and best-selling futurist who has correctly predicted the technological changes on more than one occasion. They include Parag Khanna, geo-strategic leader and expert on the future of cities and the growing impact of Asian countries on the global economy, and Justine Cassell, a leader in the implementation of emotional intelligence in AI. They and their rivals, peers, and colleagues are available to book from Aurum if you decide to organize your event with us.

If you want a talk that looks at the future of your organization or sector, and that offers the most expansive and critical view possible, look no further. Choose the speaker you’ve always dreamt of and our team will do the rest. When it comes to predicting the future, it’s always wisest to look to the best minds available.
