An AI focussed company based at Nexus, the University of Leeds’ innovation hub, has tapped human behaviour specialist, Dr Stuart Flint, as company president.
Dr Flint is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Leeds and brings significant experience to Scaled Insights.
According to Barry Singleton, Chief Relationship Officer, he will “add immense value to our core technology, which we’re expanding into a wide range of applications in healthcare, personalised education and financial services.”
He added: “Bridging the gap between business and academia was the very reason we chose to locate to Nexus and being part of that community has enabled us to make this connection and forge a truly collaborative working relationship.”
Dr Stuart Flint said: “Academic collaboration with industry is the future. With a foot firmly placed in academia and one in Scaled Insights, I will have the opportunity to demonstrate key impact, in terms of the development of policy, changing healthcare approaches and where relevant, improving treatment.”
Nexus Collaboration Manager, Dr Harrison Evans added: “Knowledge transfer is truly a two-way street and in our first year, Nexus is already seeing major benefits for businesses and the University of Leeds as they collaborate on innovations which are set to revolutionise healthcare on a global scale.”
