Dr Jat Singh has a significant track record in interdisciplinary research at the intersection of tech, law and society. He leads the Compliant and Accountable Systems research group, a multi-disciplinary team exploring the interplays of technology and law, and co-chairs the Cambridge Trust & Technology Initiative, which drives research exploring the dynamics of trust and distrust regarding technology, society and power. Singh holds an EPSRC Digital Economy Fellowship on a legally-complaint IoT and is PI for the project Realising Accountable Intelligent Systems. He is a Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute, and is active in the tech-policy space, having been seconded to the UK Government, advising government, regulators and third-sector organisations, with direct impact on law and policy discussions.
Singh will lead our strand on precarity asking not only how data, AI, automated decision-making and other emerging technologies should be governed but also about the lived realties of precarity on connective issues around wellbeing, civic culture and social justice. Working with Jennifer Cobbe, he brings expertise in the computing, legal and policy domains, with established connections with a number of law and policy organisations and research partners, and clear routes to impact.
