My research focuses on AI. I am particularly interested in building trustworthy AI. This decomposes into a number of technical challenges such as fairness, transparency, explainability, privacy and robustness. Trust has other dimensions besides the technical such as the social and political. I therefore engage with the public and politicians in exploring how we can build trust in technologies like AI. My technical research has focused recently on AI problems for social good such as organ matching. In the policy space, I was Chair of the learned academies expert group advising the government on AI, and contributed to Australia's ethical framework for AI. I have worked with Government departments such as Education, Industry and the Attorney General's office, and bodies such as the Human Rights Commission to ensure the impact of AI is beneficial. I have been a leading voice in the debate around autonomous weapons and have spoken at the UN and to governments around the world about this issue.
