I am a cultural scientist who works at the intersection of digital technologies, AI, big data, and society. I co-lead a Master’s program in AI, Ethics, and Society at the University of Cambridge, UK, and I am also a senior research fellow at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence. AI might need many things, and it certainly needs critical pedagogies – that’s what I am arguing.
You can find an up-to-date list of recent and forthcoming research and writing here, and a list of my recent talks at arts and cultural programs here. Before transitioning to academia, I worked with feminist and digital rights NGOs in India and Europe for close to 15 years.
My work about digital media and technology is a composite of lines of inquiry and methodologies across academic research, teaching, advocacy, and cultural practice. Interdisciplinarity is a methodology, it remains something of an ideal achieved through practice over time. I [want to] bring this to bear on larger questions: how the Humanities, Sciences, and Arts make knowledge about and with digital technologies; what changes as machines ‘learn’ about human and nonhuman worlds and act within them; and what this implies for histories, politics, and societies of the future(s).
