Steve Grand OBE (born 12 February 1958) is a British computer scientist and roboticist. He was the creator and lead programmer of the Creatures artificial life simulation, which he discussed in his first book Creation: Life and how to make it, a finalist for the 2001 Aventis Prize for Science Books. He is also an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, which he received in 2000.

Grand's project from 2001-2006 was the building of an artificial robot baby orang-utan, with the intention of having it learn as a human baby would. This is documented in his book Growing up with Lucy.
