What is AI?

July 9th, 2024

Everyone is talking about artificial intelligence – and we all have LOTS of questions. What exactly is it? Why is it such a big deal? Are there any risks? And how is it going to transform our lives?

Award-winning author-illustrator Neal Layton is here to explain all there is to know about AI, from the early computers that could only solve sums to the AI programs of today that can recognise human speech and recommend TV shows – and what AI might be able to do in the future. Along the way, readers will learn just how incredible their human brains really are, and what intelligence is all about.

No Idling!

January 19th, 2023

I recently worked with a friend at Sustrans and Public Health Dorset to help illustrate a campaign to improve air quality outside schools.

The idea was to help children and their families understand the impact of air pollution, what causes it and how it can be reduced. One of the key aims being to raise awareness about the impact of leaving a car engine running when parked, especially outside schools.

They created lots of content- toolkits and info sheets – and  I created the illustration which will go on banners outside schools.

I thought they did a brilliant job – with a difficult subject, and I know air quality is also a big issue countrywide…
