PhD Candidate, University of Hull
Biographical Info: I am currently half-way through my PhD Systems Science/Management at the University of Hull. My original research focus in 2011 was on open innovation and collective intelligence using social technologies. My key interests are technology and innovative uses of technology for societal progress – of which my Masters research(2011) found that personal boundaries were key (and systemic) constraints.
My thesis focus has now changed to “Systemic Leadership in a Networked World” with a focus on the concept of ‘Boundary’.
Ultimately, hence my interest in cybernetics, is in robotics, artificial intelligence and recreating ‘the machine’.
This is my first conference proceeding so I’m keen to learn. In the spirit of open innovation and collective intelligence, I am looking forward to hearing thoughts on how my current research, the Boundary Triage, can be improved and connect with others. Fieldwork on the Boundary Triage is currently being conducted in Australia.
