“Juliette Powell is one of the few people I can recommend without reservation. I have never seen Juliette give anything less than 150% and I've never seen her pull off less than a minor miracle in everything she puts herself into. In short, if the project is anything but boring, Juliette will absolutely be a net positive on it.” ~ Astro Teller, Captain of Moonshots at X (formerly Google X)
As a consultant at the intersection of technology, business and ethics, Juliette has advised large (and in some cases quite famous) companies on the questions of how to deal with the accelerating change that is underway due to AI-enabled technological innovation coupled with shifting social dynamics and heightened global competition.
Juliette’s research at Columbia university is informed by her work with multinational companies like Intel Labs and with governmental institutions where she is focussed on the responsible deployment of AI, ethical data exploration, as well as the search and removal of negative biases.
Juliette identifies the patterns and practices of successful business leaders who bank on ethical AI and data to win.
Her live commentary on Bloomberg, BNN, NBC, CNN, ABC and BBC and powerful presentations at institutions like The Economist, Harvard and MIT emerged from her lifelong interest in community-building combined with a deep knowledge of the people, technologies and business practices at the forefront of connected society.
Powell’s consulting services include global strategy and scenarios around AI and data, banking, mobile, retail, and social gaming which are employed by corporate, government and media organizations including Intel Labs, Reuters, the United Nations, Warner Brothers, l’Union des Banques Suisses, the Department of Justice, the Department of Finance, Microsoft, Nokia, Research in Motion, The Red Cross, Cirque du Soleil and IBM.
A passionate advocate for digital literacy, critical thinking and collaboration, Powell keynotes regularly on the Future(s) of Innovation, Information, Leadership and Education. In 2011, Powell began working with the E-G8, an extension of the G8 summit, created to inform G8 leaders on the future of the internet and connected society.
Bilingual, Juliette consults and gives keynotes in both English and French.
