Peter J. Scott

Founder at Next Wave Institute
On the record

Peter Scott is helping us to get along with artificial intelligence. A Master’s degree in computer science from Cambridge University led him to spend more than thirty years working for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, helping advance our exploration of space. A parallel pursuit of the human development field as a certified coach positioned him to recognize and address technological disruption. The births of his children brought him into a mission, to help people understand, use, and advance AI for the betterment of all. He has given TEDx talks, spoken to audiences as diverse as transformational leaders, executives, and British parliamentarians, and created a program to train coaches in helping clients become resilient to exponential disruption. In 2020 he started the Artificial Intelligence and You podcast, bringing together expert guests as diverse as politicians, CEOs, philosophers, developers, and artists to help audiences understand this incredibly complex thing called AI. He lives in the Pacific Northwest.
