You don’t want to miss this Conversation With Purrr with this extraordinary human, Dr Catriona Wallace – who I affectionately call Doc.
Doc has been acknowledged as one of the country’s preeminent scientists and experts in the field of artificial intelligence and the metaverse.
But what I believe makes Catriona deeply incredible is her courage.
When you hear her reflect on her extraordinary path, the theme is clear. Justice, a persistent quest for her true self, and an abiding love of this exquisite life.
Starting out as a policewoman not only taught Catriona deep empathy but also all about the things that can hurt humans. This caused her to ask the bigger question of what may harm humanity, society and our Earth in the future. And the answer she came up with was technology.
Initially, Catriona’s spiritual work sat to one side of her career, but recently she has been able to step into a life that deeply entwines her training and knowledge in AI with her spirituality and training as a Shamanic healer.
Catriona believes that sharing knowledge about the responsible use of technology is her true calling.
Her message is for us to take pause, and consider the catastrophic and existential risk that is posed by AI to humans, society at large, and to the planet. Raising awareness of this is her true purpose and her true passion.
Over a warming cup of Tiger Purrr chai, we get super intimate about Doc’s troubled past and what has made her the woman she is today.
