Creating a connected world of intelligent things
Liam Quinn grew up on the west coast of Ireland and got drawn into an IT career early on, driven by his curiosity about how things worked. Taking apart and reassembling his uncle’s radio transmitters, Liam quickly understood that putting together the same components could only take him so far in his quest to improve the way the radio operated. Key to any improvement was, and is, the evolution of technology on all levels, in all areas, in all disciplines and… curiosity.
Today, in his role as Dell’s Chief Technology Officer, Liam is responsible for looking after the management, security, and integration of ever more intelligent personal compute devices. He reminds us of the responsibility that comes with technological developments that drive human progress and change how we do things, in IT, our workplace and, realistically, every aspect of our lives. In this episode, Liam calls out the many implications and opportunities stemming from a world of connected, intelligent things.
