“I have the privilege to be the first director of the Just AI Lab, a genuinely multidisciplinary team working to ensure the just transition to socially just, trustworthy, responsible, open, inclusive and sustainable AI. Students are benefitting from our research-led teaching that constantly challenges them to understand, criticise, and use new technologies in an honest and responsible way.
