Wired UK , executive editor
Jeremy White is the Executive Editor at technology and innovation magazine WIRED,
covering a wide range of areas from AI to cybersecurity. Jeremy previously served as the
magazine’s Product Editor, where he was responsible for their coverage of all manner of
physical products, from smarthome hubs to cars, footwear to phones, drones to interior design.
As well as writing and editing, Jeremy also consults directly with a wide range of businesses
delivering an outside perspective on the latest developments and how products might better be
designed. He looks at the very latest in intelligent industrial design and product innovation. By
considering how companies create new products, where they get it wrong and right, how
technology is applied well and poorly, he helps companies and individuals to understand
innovative thinking, how they can adopt it, and how their lives and businesses might change.
Jeremy also examines the effect new innovations will have on businesses more broadly. From
the embedding of AI in almost every product possible to the future of voice control, quantum
computing and the interconnection of everything. He looks at the unexpected ways new
developments are changing established markets and industries with good design, a focus on
the user, and only using technology when it adds value. He speaks about how car
manufacturers now consider electronics shows more important than motor shows and how the
makers of smart appliances sometimes add connectivity with no real purpose.
Passionate about the power of design, Jeremy looks at the very latest breakthroughs in design
and user interfaces. He considers what these shifts mean and what an organisation can learn
about future threats and opportunities as well as how to improve their own offerings.
As well as leading WIRED’s coverage of innovative products and their position on new
releases, Jeremy has also compiled their GEAR product supplements, and the product
showcases at the acclaimed WIRED live events. He has also written for the Telegraph on all
things gadget related and previously worked for the FT and Esquire magazine. He’s a regular
commentator on BBC and Sky and has worked with the Design Museum’s Designs of the Year
