Mr Tuomi is the Founder and Chief Scientist at Meaning Processing Ltd, an independent public research organization located in Helsinki, Finland. Before his current assignment, he was with the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, Institute for Prospective Technological Studies, Seville, Spain. Before joining IPTS in 2002 as Visiting Scientist, he developed research strategy for the Finnish Technology Agency and the Finland Berkeley Information Technology and Society Program. During 1999-2001, Mr Tuomi was visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley, where he conducted research on the new dynamics of innovation networks, working with Professors Manuel Castells and Ikujiro Nonaka. From 1987 to 2001 he worked at Nokia Research Center, Finland, most recently as Principal Scientist, Information Society and Knowledge Management.

Mr Tuomi has been member of the European Commission's High-Level Socio-Economic Expert Group on Information Society, expert member of the Information Society Technologies Advisory Group (ISTAG), and he has served on committees and working groups on telematics, learning technologies, Internet regulation, research ethics, open source development, regional innovation systems, future of computing, and economic development. In 1997-9 he was a sub-group chairman for the European Industrial Research Management Association (EIRMA) working group 54 on Corporate Knowledge Management. In 1994-96, he was a member in EIRMA Working Group 50 on Long-Term Planning in a Continuously Changing World, chairing the sub-group on the emerging models for long-term planning. He has been an expert member of the European Commission Information Society Advisory Group "Scenarios for Ambient Intelligence in 2010" group, and ICT & IS panel in the European Commission's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies "futures@europe.2010" project, as well as an expert member in the institute's working groups on research ethics and digital identity. He has been a member of the high-level Transatlantic Dialogue on Broadcasting and the Information Society (TaDoBatIS). In 1999-2000 he was an expert member in the Institute for the Future's Global Innovation Outlook project in Menlo Park, California. He has served on the boards of several Finnish societies, including the Finnish Artificial Intelligence Society and the Finnish Society for Investigative Journalism. He has been an executive board member of the Finnish Information Society Forum, and twice nominated member of the Scientific Council of the Finnish National Fund for Research and Development (SITRA).

Mr. Tuomi has been involved in several European and international research projects since the 1980s. He has written five books, chapters in 25 books, over 60 scientific articles, numerous scientific reports, and he is author of two international mobile communications patents. His texts have been used as background material for the development of national, regional, and European research strategies, the World Summit on Information Society, and Commission communications. His work has been quoted in the international press, including the Guardian (U.K.), El País (E), El Mundo (E), NyTeknik (S), Focus (D), New York Times (USA), Nikkei Information Strategy (Japan), El Mercurio (CL), Computerworld, New Scientist, and Business 2.0, and his research has been used to revise the editorial stylebook entry on Moore's Law in the San Jose Mercury News.

He is currently member of the editorial board of First Monday, a peer-reviewed online journal focusing on the Internet, editorial board of the European Journal of Education, advisory group member of the UNESCO Project Anticipation, and member of the board of the Peace Machine Association.

Mr Tuomi has been an invited speaker on knowledge management, digital transformation, new innovation models, next-generation foresight, and the future of learning in Finland, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Greece, France, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, the U.K., United States, Thailand, and Qatar. His most recent book, Networks of Innovation: Change and Meaning in the Age of the Internet, was published by the Oxford University Press, 2002/2003, and in paperback in 2006. At present, he is working on a book on the societal, economic, and human impact of artificial intelligence.
