A further leading speaker has been announced as taking to the stage at Digital City Expo – Sherin Mathew, Microsoft AI Lead at IBM, and Founder of AI Tech North.

Sherin will speak in the Tech Masterclass Theatre at Digital City Expo, covering the “disruption of AI disruption”. Passionate about AI and its use in humanitarianism and AI for good, Sherin works within the Microsoft Consultancy at IBM. He works on assisting businesses with AI readiness, defining strategies, and helping leaders with cloud adoption.

He is also the founder of AI Tech North, a conference focusing on the modern AI sector which aims to showcase innovation and talent in AI. During his talk at Digital City Expo, Mathew plans to cover AI myths, AI reality and breaking down the AI barriers.

Digital City Expo – which arrives in Manchester on March 11th and 12th – forms part of the larger Digital City Festival, which aims to celebrate the best in digital from across the UK and beyond. Digital professionals will gather in Manchester to meet, collaborate and network at a range of events.

See the full range of speakers, as well as exhibitors and sponsors already lined up for Digital City Expo 2020.

The exhibition brings together Marketing Show North, Tech Show North and eCommerce Show North all under one roof, adding to them the all-new Media Zone which celebrates boutiques, independents, startups and scale-ups revolutionising digital.

Speaking ahead of Digital City Expo, Sherin said: “I am passionate about Tech and I love how technology can impact lives and create a revolution. I personally believe events bring people together; people resonate with ideas; ideas connect when people collaborate; collaborations create dreams; and dreams start revolutions! 

“Therefore, we need digital events to revolutionise, and make our future great. I am super excited to participate, support and speak about AI at Digital City Festival whilst representing AI Tech North.”


Sherin previewed his talk ahead of the event in March. “We’ll open the session with insight into the art of executive thinking on how to get started with AI, how to plan an AI journey for businesses, and how to implement AI without facing the challenge of not knowing where to start. We’ll teach you how to disrupt the disruption!

“In addition, we will demystify the AI hype, and talk about trends and capability. This session will help decisionmakers and IT leaders get some intelligent ideas flowing.”

Pre-registration for Digital City Expo is open now. Entry provides access to all talks and all four expos at Manchester Central.
