Hi, my name is Ross Mason, I work for the UK National Health Service (NHS) where I lead teams of clinicians to deliver Mental Health assessment and treatment accross Norfolk. I am also a Post-graduate researcher at the University of East Anglia (UEA).

My research explores applied Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications in health care, and touches on themes of digital transformation and client/clinician experiences. I am also interested in the long-term technical and strategic challenges arising from development towards generally intelligent AI systems (AGI’s).

My research direction was inspired from the work of Yuval Noah Harari Homo Deus, 21 lessons for the 21st century, and transformative knowledge from Nick Bostrom’s TED Talk on the long term impacts of Artificial Intelligence.

I am a keen autodidact and I tweet, write, and share my learning journey through programming, mathematics and artificial intelligence. I enjoy disseminating knowledge, and hope that sharing my successes and challenges will inspire other learners.
