Speaker: Dr. Jennifer Chubb.
Short Bio: ” I am a postdoctoral researcher in the ethics and impact of science and technology. That means I am mostly concerned with the societal implications of science. My current postdoc at DC labs looks at the impact of AI over the coming decades examining the views of scientists, thought leaders and industry about the future implications of AI for humanity. My background is in moral philosophy and science policy and now in social science – and yet I work in a very interdisciplinary environment at York, DC labs – as a member of the Computer Science Department. This can confuse some people! But while the Lab works on all aspects of digital technology and interactive storytelling, from its development through to its implementation, my role enables me to explore the implications for society from scholarly, public, policy and technological impact perspectives. This talk will describe my journey to this point and some of the considerations I see in working in an interdisciplinary manner”.
