Marcus Hallside is a Senior Scientist at Future Worlds Center since 2020. He collaborates with Yiannis Laouris and Kevin Dye in planning and implementing Structured Democratic Dialogues across the globe. The Addressing Racial, Economic and Educational Inequalities through Our University Network project received significant attention from the academic community.

Marcus established a software house in Israel in the early 1980s that acquired the local distribution rights for the Oracle relational database. Marcus developed this company into one of the country's leading information technology service and training organizations. In 1996 Oracle Corporation purchased the Oracle-related assets of the company and established a local subsidiary. At that time, Marcus established a UK-based research and development organization that implemented the first IT solution for the risk assessment of air passengers traveling between Europe and the USA. In 1999, the US Federal Aviation Administration awarded Marcus a grant to undertake a multi-year air cargo security cooperative research and development program to address security risks in air cargo shipments. This project resulted in the design and launch of the first operational Known Shipper/Trusted Trader program in 2002 by the then-newly formed US Transportation Security Administration (TSA). In the following years, Innovative Compliance undertook similar research and development projects with The European Commission (DG-TREN) and the Government of Canada (Transport Canada) and delivered air cargo security studies for the Australian Office of Transport Security. Since 2001 Marcus has been working with the team at Future Worlds Center to promote the application of Structured Democratic Dialogue to resolve complex social-technical challenges
