Accepted Paper:

Roundtable participant: Christine Aicardi  
Christine Aicardi (King's College London)

Paper short abstract:

I am a Senior Research Fellow in Science and Technology Studies at King’s College London, Department of Global Health & Social Medicine. I have extensive experience collaborating in multidisciplinary teams to facilitate responsible research and innovation practices in the development of future technologies.

Paper long abstract:

From 2014 to 2020 I worked in the Foresight Laboratory of the Ethics and Society group of the Human Brain Project, a Future and Emerging Technology flagship of the European Commission. Since 2020, I am also Responsible Research & Innovation Lead for the Centres for Doctoral Training in Smart Medical Imaging and in Safe & Trusted Artificial Intelligence at King’s College London. I originally trained as an engineer and worked for well over a decade in the tech industry. My social scientific research focuses on the sciences and technologies of brain and mind; interdisciplinary practices and collaborations; futures studies, notably the use of speculative science fiction for participatory foresight work. The latter is strongly fuelled by my non-professional taste for science fiction and fantasy.
