Artificial Intelligence in the Public Interest

Our core aim is to be at the forefront of the global development of responsible and controllable AI, with the goal of generating innovative solutions to contemporary societal problems. We will develop novel research into AI algorithms to create transparent AI systems whereby reasoning processes can be interrogated and communicated to experts and users. Adopting a range of critical perspectives, we will contribute to ethical, legal and political regulation frameworks for AI.

Through interdisciplinary projects drawing on expertise from across fourteen schools we seek to train a new generation of engineers, thinkers, and scholars who share a socially responsible vision.

Potential project areas: Health and Wellbeing; Ethical, Legal, Social and Environmental Implications of AI; Creative Machines; Communicating with and through AI.
