Chair: Dr Kanta Dihal

Dr Kanta Dihal is a postdoctoral research associate and Research Project Coordinator of the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence.

As a researcher on the AI Narratives project she explores how fictional and nonfictional stories shape the development and public understanding of artificial intelligence. Kanta's work intersects the fields of science communication, literature and science, and science fiction. She obtained her DPhil in Science Communication at the University of Oxford: in her thesis, titled 'The Stories of Quantum Physics,' she investigated the communication of conflicting interpretations of quantum physics to adults and children. She is the editor of the forthcoming collection AI Narratives: A History of Imagining Thinking About Intelligent Machines.
