Darren McKee

Author, Speaker and Advisor on AI

Author of "Uncontrollable" - a best-selling, engaging, and beginner-friendly book on the promise and peril of Artificial Intelligence. As an experienced Advisor in diverse policy domains, I've dedicated over 25 years of my life to understanding how human behaviour interacts with technology and society to impact out world.

I am a Senior Policy Advisor with over 15 years experience across a broad range of domains, including science and technology, behavioural science, and foresight.  I was an advisor to AIGS Canada and I have followed the world of artificial intelligence and related issues for years, exploring AI language models, image generators, deepfakes and the social implications thereof.  In 2021, I co-authored a chapter on AI and Autonomy in the book “Westworld Psychology,” and have two academic publications.  Academically, I have a Master of Science (Experimental Psychology) and a Master of Public Administration (Global Governance concentration).

In addition to my work on AI and in policy, I am the host of the international award-winning podcast The Reality Check. It’s a top 0.5% (Listen Notes) podcast and has been downloaded over 4 million times. I’ve presented hundreds of diverse topics related to science and critical thinking, explaining many complicated subjects to a wide audience in an engaging manner.
