Carrington Malin helps large organisations, digital brands and fast growing tech ventures with brand, communications and go-to-market strategies. He also has a focus on emerging technologies and the key trends that are shaping our new AI first world.
I’m an entrepreneur, marketer and consultant, focused on emerging technologies and our new AI first world of communications. As a consultant, I help companies, startup ventures and public sector organisations to develop strategies for communications, marketing and digital initiatives, leveraging new technologies.
Although I have experience in a variety of different industries, I’ve been consistently working with the technology industry for more than twenty years, seeing wave after wave of new technologies firsthand. In fact, I’ve worked with clients across almost every technology sector from microchips to consumer electronics, from smart phones to national telecom networks, and from ecommerce to industry regulation. I’ve also seen digital communications bring wholesale change to the world of sales and marketing, changing the way consumers behave and the way brands market to them.
Today, my work increasingly supports emerging technology ventures related to artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR) / virtual reality (VR), blockchain, drones, Internet of Things (IoT), robotics and smart cities. I’m also watching closely how artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies are changing brands, consumer behaviour, media and communications.
The Government of Dubai has recently issued a new drone law (Law No. 04 of 2020), outlining new regulations governing commercial drone activity in the emirate. Dubai’s new drone law could allow emirate to leapfrog the global competition and kick-start a whole new industry that is right at the forefront of innovation.
The new Dubai drone law paves the way for Dubai Department of Civil Aviation (DCAA) to implement a ‘Dubai Sky Dome’ initiative, which aims to create a virtual airspace infrastructure and ecosystem for commercial drone use in the emirate. The new law and the Dubai Sky Dome combined could significantly change the commercial environment and the roll-out of the new regulation is bound to be watched closely by policy makers the drone industry worldwide.
