Drones, driverless cars, robots that look and think like human… May intelligent systems really pose a threat to humans one day? Mateja addresses this question from a scientific perspective and talks about how the enormous amounts of data we have today can possibly allow machines to think indistinguishably from a human. She argues her faith in artificial intelligence as a supportive and effective system in the hands of human experts.
Mateja is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. Having previously held an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship, Mateja is definitely disrupting that typical gender stereotype of a scientist in artificial intelligence. As a founder of women@CL she reminds all how important is to celebrate the gender diversity and help women aspire to leadership positions in both academia and in.
