Researcher and Policy Analyst, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC)

Terralynn Forsyth is a Researcher and Policy Analyst with a background in economics and international relations working in predictive analytics and social policy at Employment and Social Development Canada (EDSC). Her research interests centre on technology's impact on the changing nature of work, the social impacts for vulnerable populations, and complexity economics. She also serves as Research Lead for Audacious Futures, a global launch pad for bold innovation, focused on venture projects looking at the future of work, education and the intersections of technology and humanity.

Terralynn is particularly interested in enabling labour programs and education transition from industrial form to accessible and intelligent platform models. “I am also passionate about seeing our exponential technology serve the needs of humanity, extend opportunity for positive social impact and enable a more developed collective intelligence,” says Terralynn. “I believe that AI, specifically, serves as a game changer in terms of general purpose technologies and presents vast opportunities for sustainable development.”

She’s an advocate of “anti-disciplinary” approaches to problem solving and hopes to offer this same voice in thinking at the intersections at the Summit.
