Abhishek Dasgupta is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Technology and Global Affairs and the coordinator of the Artificial Intelligence research theme at the Centre. His doctoral thesis focussed on how inference algorithms in machine learning can be modified to perform inference under time constraints.
Abhishek is interested in the impact of artificial intelligence on government and society; the use of machine learning to inform policy issues and political science theory; the role of open source and open data in artificial intelligence; and the existential risk from artificial intelligence. His recent research with Radoslaw Zubek and David Doyle from the Department of Politics and International Relations has been to develop automated models to predict legislative salience. Previously, Abhishek has conducted research in complex systems and contributed to Linux distributions such as Debian.
