“Agile” and “AI” are undoubtedly terms you’ve run into in the workplace. You may have wondered how these two domains are likely to interact with one another, and, if you’re part of an Agile Team, what this might mean for Agile workplaces and roles going forward. This talk tackles these questions by unpacking the affinities and disparities between Agile and AI through both the theoretical and practical lens.  Refreshments will be served, with time for networking at the end of the talk.

About Cat

In addition to her research role, while at Harvard she undertook many innovative teaching positions. For example, helping with the development of Harvard University’s ‘Embedded EthiCS program,’ by designing and delivering many of its ‘ethics modules’ to computer science classes, and later, in her role as ‘Ethics Pedagogy Fellow,’ at the Edmund & Lily Safra Center for Ethics, creating detailed reports on their most commonly used tools and approaches, and using these to further assess the scalability of the program, both to other institutions and to research topics beyond Computer Science.

She was also fortunate enough to develop the ‘Philosophy of Technology’ course at the Harvard Kennedy School alongside Prof. Matthias Risse. The course is dynamic in terms of topics, readings and students. She is proud to say that the once-optional supplementary student tutorials are now mandatory in its most recent iterations, due to the enormously positive feedback from students who took them with me.
