Jess is Executive Director of the Accelerate Programme for Scientific Discovery, and Director of the Data Trusts Initiative. She has a range of collaborations in areas where AI is being used to tackle real-world challenges. These explore the roles that technological advances, scientific evidence, policy development and public dialogue can play in sharing the benefits of AI technologies across society. Her interests in AI and its consequences for science and society stem from her policy career, in which she worked with senior parliamentarians, leading researchers and civil society organisations to bring scientific evidence to bear on major policy issues.
