Nell Watson

Nell Watson (CFBCS, FIAP, FRSA, FLS, FRSS, CITP) is an engineer, educator and tech philosopher who grew up in Northern Ireland.

Nell founded Poikos (now QuantaCorp). This original, patented technology enables fast and simple 3D body measurement from only two planes (front and side), using a simple cellphone camera, by applying sophisticated deep learning technologies. This service enables fast and accurate personalization services in telemedicine, mass customization, and retail.

Today, Nell educates others in how to implement such technologies, for example, by creating video coursebooks for O’Reilly.

She is also Co-Founder of EthicsNet, a non-profit, building a movement of people who are committed to help machines understand humans better. This community acts as role models and guardians to raise kind AI, by providing virtual experiences, and collecting examples of pro-social practices.

In her spare time, Nell enjoys coding games, such as her startup life simulator, Founder Life. Founder Life attempts to teach the mindfulness and psychological habits necessary for entrepreneurs to consistently execute under pressure.

Nell lectures globally on Machine Intelligence, AI philosophy, Human-Machine relations, and the Future of Human Society, serving on the Faculty of AI & Robotics at Singularity University.

What people say about Nell Watson

“The content was quite provocative, which is what I had wanted. Her slides were beautiful. And her delivery was flawless. It was so obvious how much time she put into it and how much pride she takes in what she does. And audience feedback has been extremely positive. I would not hesitate to recommend her. She’s a pro!”


“Thank you for the impeccable presentation.  You are an amazing speaker and the entire audience was spellbound listening to you talk.”

“Nell put each person in an envelope in which knowledge and insights have been lavishly scattered around. The interview afterwards also testified of expertise. Giving a talk is one thing; giving a Q & A afterwards and giving new insights is something else. In a busy world full of stimuli and speed, Nell’s talk was a relief, a resting point, a moment of pure contemplation.”
