Prof Jose Such is Professor in the Department of Informatics at King’s College London and Director of the KCL Cybersecurity Centre. His research interests are at the intersection of artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction and cybersecurity, with a strong focus on human-centred AI security, ethics, and privacy. He has been Principal Investigator for projects funded by UKRI, EPSRC, ICO, NCSC, and Google.
Dr Mary Bispham is Research Associate in the KCL Cybersecurity Centre working on the Secure AI Assistants (SAIS) project. Mary received her DPhil in Cybersecurity from the University of Oxford for research investigating the security of human-computer interaction by speech, focussing on the context of voice-controlled AI assistants. Her research interests are at the intersection of cybersecurity and speech and language technology.
Dr Xavier Ferrer Aran is a Research Associate in Digital Discrimination at the Department of Informatics, King’s College London. Xavier obtained his PhD in Informatics in 2017 from the Artificial Intelligence Institute of the Spanish National Research Council (IIIA-CSIC) and the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB). His research interests are at the intersection of natural language processing, machine learning, and fairness.
Dr William Seymour is a Research Associate on the EPSRC-funded Secure AI Assistants project, exploring ways of explaining the privacy and security behaviours of AI assistants. Before this he was part of a project with the ICO on the future of data protection in smart homes. He recieved his DPhil in Cybersecurity from the University of Oxford.
Dr Tom van Nuenen is a Research Associate in Digital Discrimination at the Department of Informatics, King’s College London. He is interested in cross-disciplinary research on the socio-cultural impact of AI systems, and his current work focuses on the epistemic assumptions of explainability and transparency.
Noura received BSc in Computer Forensics at Liverpool John Moores University then started her PhD at Kings College London. Her PhD focuses on providing Usable-Privacy mechanisms for Smart Home Personal Assistants (SPAs). After having studied users' privacy perceptions, mental models, and preferences of SPAs, she is currently working on the role of Healthcare AI Assistants and SPA's developers perceptions.
Jide received his master’s in Cybersecurity from Lancaster University and currently doing his PhD in computer science working on the research project “Cost Effective Security Testing of Cyber-Physical System”. He is also part of the ICO project that is working on evaluating third-party smart home assistant developers.
Hana is interested in the intersection of artificial intelligence and sociology. Her PhD is focused on the interaction between AI systems and users. In particular, she is interested in exploring how different communities interact with AI systems and how could this inform the design of more understandable AI explanations.
Francesca Mosca is a PhD student in the Department of Informatics working on agent-based models for supporting multiuser privacy. In particular, she is interested in user-centric approaches for managing multiuser privacy conflicts and her work focusses on models that are explainable and morally aligned with the end users.
Aqib received his master’s in Computer Science from King’s College London. He is currently doing a PhD which is exploring how we can devise defences against adversarial examples in malware machine learning models. He is exploring this problem through his various research interests at the intersection of systems security, machine learning and game theory.
Xiao(Nicole) received her master's in Cybersecurity from King’s College London and is now working on her PhD topic ‘Security and Privacy Norms for AI Assistants’. Her research interests are at the intersection of normative reasoning, cybersecurity and human-computer interactions.
