About Calum

Calum Chace is a best-selling writer and sought-after speaker on artificial intelligence. He focuses on the medium- and long-term impact of AI on all of us, our societies and our economies.
His non-fiction books on AI are Surviving AI, about strong AI and superintelligence, and The Economic Singularity, about the prospect of widespread technological unemployment. He also wrote Pandora’s Brain, a techno-thriller about the first superintelligence. In the last four years he has given 120 talks in 18 countries on five continents. Videos and lots of other materials are available at
He is co-founder of a think tank focused on the future of jobs, called the Economic Singularity Club. The ESC has published Stories from 2045, a book of short stories.
Before becoming a full-time writer and speaker, Calum had a 30-year career in journalism and in business, as a marketer, a strategy consultant and a CEO. Before that, he studied philosophy at Oxford University, which confirmed his suspicion that the science fiction he had been reading since boyhood is actually philosophy in fancy dress.
