My favourite AI in culture project at the moment is… In Event of Moon Disaster, a project that I personally collaborated on.

By 2030 I would like to have an AI app which…has a conscious experience of emotion or some level of affective intelligence.

My worst AI nightmare is… human biases and radical views seeping into the technology in a way that we would not be able to control or reverse.

The future of AI needs…interdisciplinary collaboration, and a deep focus on ethics and morality.
