S.D. Nelson

Nelson is a PMP who contributed to testing robots at NASA. He was dubbed “Global Geek” for leading projects world-wide. His goal is to work in 100 countries because learning how other cultures solve problems adds more project management tools to his project management toolkit.

Currently, he is putting his experience to work focusing on successfully adding emerging technologies to the project team. As project managers, what role can we assign to artificial intelligence? Can IoT Devices solve problems and report status like human team members?

He has an open source lab near Los Angeles that is conducting experiments alongside the I3 Consortium and the IOTA Foundation.
