Meet the speaker: Unisys’ Senior Director of AI, Simon Price

Now, we are less than a week away from Technology & AI LIVE event, Shaping the Future of Technology & AI, we take a look at the speakers we have lined up

In Brief

Name: Simon Price

Company: Unisys

Position: Senior Director, Artificial Intelligence

Year joined: 2019

Attending: 23rd June

Keynote topic: How to do AI securely on sensitive data

Who is Unisys’ Simon Price?

Simon Price directs the delivery of advanced analytics in client solutions at Unisys, a global IT solutions company that delivers successful outcomes for the most demanding businesses and governments. 

He has previously worked at Lloyds Register, Just Eat, NATO, Capgemini and the University of Bristol, where he remains an honorary research fellow.

Price’s keynote, titled ‘How to do AI securely on sensitive data’ will cover a range of tried and tested approaches to doing AI securely on sensitive data - including transfer learning, feature obfuscation, headless architectures and other hybrid on-site and off-site model training strategies that apply equally well in air-gapped, on-premises environments as they do in the public cloud or hybrid environments.

This speech is key as most organisations hold sensitive data that they need to closely manage access to for legal or commercial reasons. All too often, sensitive data is needlessly excluded from AI initiatives because of the perceived logistical, legal and political challenges. Ironically, sensitive data is also where some of the most valuable AI insights and opportunities are located in any organisation.
