Welcome

Grinning like cat with a dairy

Emma is an honest-to-goodness robot scientist who, when she’s not developing intelligent systems, writes for Wired, the Guardian, Forbes, and the FT.¬†She also frequently¬†appears on Sky News and the BBC talking about the future of artificial intelligence and robotics.

Her interest in neuroscience led to her first popular science book: Swearing is Good for You: The Amazing Science of Bad Language (Profile (UK), W. W. Norton (USA), Anansi (Canada) November 2017).

Her forthcoming book, How to Build a Human is a smart, funny, humane look at what science knows about childhood. It will reassure and inspire parents, would-be-parents, and even once-were-parents about the messy and beautiful process of parenting like a scientist.

Her pub, conference and convention talks lead to packed houses and requests for more. Emma is available for commissions, training, personal appearances, television, internet, and radio work. She is a member of the Society of Authors and the Association of British Science Writers.

Emma’s literary agent is Carrie Plitt at Felicity Bryan Associates. Or email me at info@emmabyrne.net
