DR PETER BOWMAN SCOTT-MORGAN was an English-American roboticist who worked with leading experts and megacorporations such as Intel, Microsoft, and DXC Technology, all researching together how to apply cutting-edge Hi-Tech to THRIVE with Extreme Disability. He was the subject of a primetime Channel-4 documentary chronicling his journey to becoming the world’s first full Cyborg, aired in 2020, as well as a book and associated podcasts. He formed the charitable Foundation dedicated to changing what it means to be human.

Earlier in his career, Peter translated his expertise in complex-system dynamics into pioneering techniques to decode the hidden inner-workings of society so as to predict and selectively rewrite strands of the future. He was the foremost authority on the Unwritten Rules that organizations, social groups, cultures, and global systems follow that dictate how they will evolve.

He was granted unparalleled confidential access across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America to analyse the secret reality of institutions, government organizations, and corporations, including many of the major players in banking, healthcare, transport, energy, chemicals, IT, telecoms, retail, manufacturing, entertainment, and media. He uncovered innumerable serious systemic threats, as well as advised leaders around the world how best to respond to them.

Having spent roughly equal periods of his career living in the USA and UK, his final residence was in Torquay, England, with his husband Francis. On 21st December 2005, they were granted the first ceremony on the first day Civil Partnerships became legal. In 2009, this was retrospectively recognised as having been a full Marriage.

In 2017, Peter was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND, also called ALS or Lou Gehrig’s) and given two years to live. Far from seeing this as a setback, he viewed it as an unrepeatable opportunity to conduct breakthrough research. Based on his unique insight into how Hi-Tech will evolve, and having now analysed the Unwritten Rules of clinical care for MND, he wrote his book Peter 2.0: The Human Cyborg, a memoir combining his experiences and professional expertise. The lessons learned from his research can help everybody with Extreme Disability, even when caused simply by ‘old age’. 

He passed away on 15th June 2022.
