An AI expert

Jennings is an internationally recognised authority in artificial intelligence, autonomous systems and cyber security. He holds a Chair in AI at Imperial College London and is responsible for facilitating the College’s research performance, as well as serving as a founding member of the UK Government’s AI Council. He is also a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers and the Institute of Engineering and Technology.

“While we are increasingly hearing about artificial intelligence in our daily lives and in business, getting machine systems to make genuinely autonomous decisions in complex environments is still relatively rare,” said Jennings.

“Darktrace is a unique example of a self-learning technology that is proven to work reliably and at scale in real-world organisations where data sets are messy and constantly changing. It has overcome fundamental engineering challenges in order to do this and is now leading a major shift in our ability to defend against increasingly advanced cyber security threats. I am excited to join Darktrace as an advisor as the company continues its path of radical technological innovation and rapid global growth.”
