We’re delighted to announce that Kwiziq’s CEO, Dr Gareth Davies, has been invited to be a speaker on Monday at Codex World’s Top 50 Innovators event at the Royal Society, London, 23rd – 25th September 2019.
The event is one of the most prestigious on the technology calendar and features a distinguished line up of fifty scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and visionaries “moving the world forward with the power of their technologies and ideas”.
Gareth – Gruff as he’s known to most – commented, “It’s a privilege to have been invited to participate and it’s a tribute to the pioneering work in educational AI that the whole team is doing here at Kwiziq.”
Gruff will be speaking in the section on Educational Technologies. The talks will be filmed and posted on the Codex website after the event.
We’re all very excited and will be watching!
About the Royal Society
Founded in 1660, the Royal Society is the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence in the world. The leading scientific lights of the past four centuries can all be found among its Fellows including: Isaac Newton, Benjamin Franklin, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Elon Musk and beyond. To be a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) is a recognition of eminence in scientific, engineering and other disciplines. It has some 1,400 members today, who include more than 80 Nobel Prize winners.
Codex International Technology Leaders Network selected the name “Codex” inspired by Leonardo da Vinci, who was the embodiment of the Renaissance ideal. His “Codex”, or notebooks, are a testament to his interest in a multitude of subjects and to visionary ideas which were centuries ahead of their time. Their mission is to evoke a similar spirit of enlightenment by inspiring technology leaders and entrepreneurs to apply their collective imaginations to deliver technologies that will continue to transform our lives. Whilst the creativity of Leonardo da Vinci was captured in his notebooks, Codex shares the wisdom of today’s great innovators via Codex Talks and events.
