A senior lecturer at St Mary’s University, Twickenham has recently been made fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts (RSA) as well as being appointed as the Vice Chair of the Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation for Behaviour (AISB).
Dr Yasemin J. Erden, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, joins a global network of just under 30,000 RSA fellows and will participate in projects on artificial intelligence, helping to address social challenges through education and collaboration.
Yasemin has also been appointed Vice Chair of the AISB, the largest artificial intelligence society in the UK. She has been a committee member of the AISB since 2014, and until now worked as the Workshop Officer. Two of these workshops, on computing and artificial intelligence and another on consciousness, were hosted by St Mary’s.
Yasemin said, “I am delighted and honoured to have been made a fellow of the RSA and appointed Vice Chair of the AISB. I am passionate about artificial intelligence and it’s a topic which is becoming ever-more important as computers and technology advance.”
