Danica is a PhD student in the LIS program at Western University. Growing up on a steady diet of science fiction and dystopian literature, Danica cultivated a fascination for new technologies and their potential impacts on society. During her Masters degree, Danica completed a research project exploring researchers’ perspectives on the impacts of making machine learning open source. Her research focus has now shifted to issues of transparency and explanation in artificial intelligence, particularly how these issues impact public understanding and how we view and make decisions about such an advanced and pervasive technology.
