Hello! There are two opportunities for anyone near Victoria, British Columbia, to take a continuing studies course from me in the New Year!

  1. Royal Roads: January 17, 9:00 – 4:30. Click here for more information and to register . This course is for business leaders or others with a stake in the future of an organization. There will be case studies and exercises tailored to futureproofing a business or other type of group.
  2. University of Victoria: Thursdays, January 16 – Feb 13, 6:30 – 8:30 .Click here for more information and to register . This course is for anyone with an interest in the short- and long-term future of humanity with respect to the effect of artificial intelligence and has a general focus.

Both courses will have practical definitions and explorations of the nature of artificial intelligence (AI). We will look at the effects of its disruption upon a variety of social institutions and sort out the hype from the science. They are essentially interactive, real-time applications of my book.

I’ve presented these courses before to rave reviews. Here are links to flyers for each event: Royal Roads and UVic.

Peter Scott’s résumé reads like a Monty Python punchline: half business coach, half information technology specialist, half teacher, three-quarters daddy. After receiving a master’s degree in Computer Science from Cambridge University, he has worked for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory as an employee and contractor for over thirty years, helping advance our exploration of the Solar System. Over the years, he branched out into writing technical books and training. Yet at the same time, he developed a parallel career in “soft” fields of human development, getting certifications in NeuroLinguistic Programming from founder John Grinder and in coaching from the International Coaching Federation. In 2007 he co-created a convention honoring the centennial of the birth of author Robert Heinlein, attended by over 700 science fiction fans and aerospace experts, a unique fusion of the visionary with the concrete. Bridging these disparate worlds positions him to envisage a delicate solution to the existential crises facing humanity. He lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and two daughters, writing the Human Cusp blog on dealing with exponential change.
