Dr Kerry Mackereth and Dr Eleanor Drage

In this episode we speak to Abeba Birhane, senior research fellow at Mozilla, about how cognition extends beyond the brain, why why we need to turn questions like ‘why aren't there enough black women in computing’ on their head and actually transform computing cultures, and why human behaviour is a complex adaptive system that can’t always be modelled computationally. 

This episode includes an ad for the What Next|TBD podcast.
