PETER SCOTT-MORGAN is an English-American roboticist who is Chief Scientist and Founder of the Next Generation Think Tank set up by the Motor Neurone Disease Association with Rolls-Royce plc, with corporate members such as Intel, Microsoft, Dell, and BT, all researching together how to apply cutting-edge Hi-Tech to THRIVE with Extreme Disability – and, in the process, change what it means to be human.
Earlier in his career, Dr Scott-Morgan translated his expertise in complex-system dynamics into pioneering techniques to decode the secret inner-workings of society. He is the foremost authority on the Unwritten Rules that organizations, social groups, cultures, and global systems really follow.
He has been granted unparalleled confidential access across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America to analyse the hidden reality of institutions, government organizations, and corporations, including many of the major players in banking, healthcare, transport, energy, chemicals, IT, telecoms, retail, manufacturing, entertainment, and media. He has uncovered innumerable serious systemic threats, as well as advised leaders around the world how best to respond to them.
Having spent roughly equal periods of his career living in the USA and UK, he currently lives in Torquay, England.
In 2017, he was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (also called ALS, Lou Gehrig’s) and given two years to live. Far from this being a setback, he views it as an unrepeatable opportunity to conduct breakthrough research. He plans not just to survive – but THRIVE. For decades. And to ensure that the lessons learned can help everybody with Extreme Disability, even when caused simply by ‘old age’. To him, the research of the Next Generation Think Tank is, quite literally, the experiment of a lifetime…
