What makes Oxford such a good place to work in AI?
It is very stimulating to find so many researchers from different disciplines and belonging to different centres collaborating together on some of the most pressing issues of our times.
What is the biggest opportunity or challenge in AI?
Figuring out, not what we can do, in the sense of what is technically feasible, but what we ought to do, what is morally desirable. The biggest challenge facing AI is to develop and implement it in such a way that it serves our best interests; to have it contribute both to citizens’ wellbeing and to ideals like democracy, equality, and fairness.
