Elin Hauge's Biography

Elin Hauge is a futurist and speaker on artificial intelligence in leadership.  She provides crucial insights on emerging technologies disrupting products and services, such as the Metaverse, the internet of things, blockchain, and virtual reality.  She is on a mission to demystify artificial intelligence (AI) to build bridges to real value for businesses and society.

Elin’s background is in mathematics, physics and business and she has been building bridges between business and data-driven technologies for 20+ years.  Elin believes that AI is the most disruptive technological development in human history, and that understanding the basics of AI is as compulsory for leaders as using a computer.  She demonstrates to clients what is possible with existing AI technology, and what decision-makers need to understand in order to make not only the right decisions, but the most responsible decisions, in the context of society.  Elin speaks about topics such as what the Metaverse means for business leaders, how organisations should be striving for sustainable digitalisation, and how organisations can harness the power of AI.

As a speaker, she provides audiences with actionable takeaways that help to connect the dots between business strategy and the application of AI.  With her down-to-earth approach and sense of humour, Elin shares her fresh perspectives to known challenges and demystifies jargon and buzzwords: as she says, “the future of artificial intelligence is not human less, it’s human more.”.  She inspires and enables leaders and businesses to optimise their organisations by integrating AI.

Previously, she founded international advisory company, The Network Development Hub, where she was an advisor to AI and Emerging Tech startups and scaleups with international expansion and growth. She also mentored hundreds of entrepreneurs across Europe on business strategy, commercialisation and go-to-market.

Elin completed a MEng in Biophysics and Medical Technology, and an MSc in Management Science and Operational Research.

  • Busting the myths about AI, and building the bridge to real value for business and society

Using real-life examples, Elin provides a concrete understanding of what AI actually entails and makes recommendations for what leaders and decision-makers should focus on.

  • Artificial intelligence and natural stupidity - Why humans, not the algorithms, are the real problem

Elin managed, with an excellent presentation, to clarify some key concepts around AI and machine learning and at the same time inspire, reassure and challenge those present (mostly leaders) about how management should be practiced in the future. I think many experienced that this was a useful session."
