Dr Ben Warner is head of strategy at ASI. He has previously worked both as a data scientist and as a commercial lead. This background has led him to specialise in working with organisations to find novel opportunities for exploiting AI across both a broad range of sectors and scales, including a FTSE 250 company and a central government department.

ASI helps apply Artificial Intelligence to solve business and policy problems. Founded in 2014, ASI has developed an unrivalled specialist expertise having designed and deployed custom machine learning algorithms through over 200 commercial engagements. This includes the UK Government’s most high-profile use of AI to counter terrorist propaganda.
