What makes Oxford such a good place to work in AI?
Oxford has a large number of world-leading academics working on AI across several departments, including computer science, information engineering, statistics, and mathematics.
What is the biggest opportunity or challenge in AI?
AI can enable new technologies that address intractable economic, environmental, political and social problems. The risk is that it is monopolised by the rich and powerful and thus exacerbates, rather than mitigates, existing structural inequalities.
