Christopher Wylie

Cambridge Analytica Whistleblower, Social Researcher, Data Scientist

Best known for his role in setting up – and then taking down – the cyberwarfare firm Cambridge Analytica, Christopher Wylie has been listed in TIME100 Most Influential People in the World, Forbes’ 30 Under 30, Politico’s 50 Most Influential People in Politics and Business Insider’s 100 Coolest People in Tech. His revelations exposing the rampant misuse of data rocked Silicon Valley, forced numerous Fortune 500 companies to overhaul cybersecurity and exposed the deep links between the Alt-Right and Russian intelligence networks. Today, Chris engages audiences around the world and makes AI understandable, disturbing – and yet somehow compelling - as he garners audiences of over 15,000 people at some of the leading global events, including Web Summit and the European Commission. He is currently the Director of Research for Hennes & Mauritz (‘H&M’), the largest global fashion brand and his work on quantifying fashion style with AI systems is already having a major impact on the fashion sector. In a previous life, Chris worked inside the highest levels of the British government and is a graduate of the London School of Economics.
