Kate is a senior lecturer in social and cultural artificial intelligence at King’s College London. Coming from an arts and humanities background (as an archaeologist) with a subsequent PhD in computer science, Kate has a demonstrable track record of combining diverse fields and methods of research. Her work investigates how people interact with and react to technology to understand how emerging and future technologies will affect us and the society in which we live. Her recent research has focused on cognition, sexuality, and intimacy and how these might be incorporated into cognitive systems. This formed the topic of her new book, "Turned On: Science, Sex, and Robots" (Bloomsbury, 2018). Kate is a member of Ada-AI, an international non-profit organization working to ensure that AI is developed and adopted in ways that are inclusive and equitable. Kate is a campaigner for gender equality and is involved in initiatives to improve opportunities for women in tech. She is also a mental health advocate and fundraiser.
