Bruno Zamborlin

Bruno is an AI researcher, entrepreneur and artist. He is known for his work in the field of human-computer interaction, which focuses on converting physical objects into touch-sensitive, interactive surfaces using vibration sensors and artificial intelligence. In 2013 he founded Mogees Limited, a London-based start-up whose products enable users to transform everyday objects into musical instruments and games using a vibration sensor and a mobile phone. In 2017 he founded HyperSurfaces, a London-Los Angeles based company whose technology converts physical surfaces of any material, shape and form into data-enabled, interactive surfaces using a vibration sensor and a coin-sized chipset.
As an artist, he produces art installations around the world and performs occasionally with UK-based electronic music duo Plaid.
