Investigative journalist Geoff White’s exclusives have covered everything from developments in artificial intelligence to fraud in the internet dating industry. He is currently writing a book on cybercrime for Reaktion Books, due for publication in 2020.
His reports for BBC News, Forbes online, Channel 4 News and Audible focus on tech’s impact on our lives: chatbots that offer psychological help, facial recognition systems that detect ethnicity, and hi-tech call centre scams.
He is also the co-creator of The Secret Life of Your Mobile Phone, a live, interactive phone hacking stage performance which shows how the global technology industry is harvesting the data leaking from your handset. The show was a sell–out hit at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017, and has been performed at music festivals, political conferences and for corporate clients.
For Channel 4 News he created the Data Baby project, a unique experiment which used a fictional online identity to expose how our personal data is being used – and abused – online.
