Alex Daley is the senior editor of Casey's Extraordinary Technology. In his varied career, he's worked as a senior research executive, a software developer, project manager, senior IT executive, and technology marketer.

He's a technologist who has collaborated on the development of cutting-edge technologies, including: remote lie detectors that work invisibly across a room, autonomous/robotic vehicles that can drive themselves unaided across hundreds of miles of rugged desert terrain, computer vision systems that enable computers to understand the depth in 2D photographs, lightweight composite ceramics that can withstand artillery fire better than metal, maps of the human genome, automated analysis of video for non-verbal communication cues, and face detection and recognition for spotting people in photos and surveillance videos.

But Alex's technological experience is only half the story. He's an industry insider of the highest order, having been involved in numerous startups as an advisor to venture capital companies. He's a trusted advisor to the CEOs and strategic planners of some of the world's largest tech companies. And he's a successful angel investor in his own right, with a long history of spectacular investment successes.
