Dr Farzana Dudhwala is a Senior Policy Advisor and the AI Futures Lead at the CDEI, responsible for using various futures methods to identify the long term issues and challenges shaping the future development of AI and data-driven technologies, and exploring their implications in different contexts. Before joining the CDEI, she was at the Government Office for AI where she designed and led the £13.5m AI and Data Science Conversion Courses programme to increase the numbers of students in AI and Data Science roles from underrepresented groups. In her previous life, Fuz was an academic who subscribed wholeheartedly to the field of STS and the critically reflexive way it prompts you to question all assumptions.
