Name: Advait Sarkar

Bio: I’m a researcher at Microsoft Research Cambridge and an affiliated lecturer of computer science at the University of Cambridge.

I study: (1) how to design human interfaces for artificial intelligence, and (2) how to help people program and interact with data. The two have more in common than you’d think!

I advise the UK government, other national governments, and regulatory bodies. I advise on matters relating to technology, society, automation, and data.

In 2016 I completed my PhD in computer science at the University of Cambridge, as a member of the marvellous Graphics and Interaction Group (“Rainbow”). I was jointly supervised by Alan Blackwell, Mateja Jamnik, and Martin Spott. Prior to that, I completed my BA and MEng in computer science, also at Cambridge, in 2012 and 2013 respectively.
