Elvira Perez Vallejos

close up Elvira Perez Vallejos is a Senior Research Fellow and Co-Investigator on the UnBias project (Horizon Institute for Digital Economy Research at the University of Nottingham). Her research background is broad and heterogeneous including speech perception, language production (i.e., psychoacoustics and psycholinguistics) and also translational research on hearing, and applied research on clinical communication and mental health. She is a member of the Institute of Mental Health and deputy lead of the Integrated Research Group (IRG) Children and Young People Focussed Group at Social Futures. Elvira has always been fascinated by the unavoidable interaction between humans and technology. Relevant for the CasMa project is her recent work on Health Communication and e-Language applying corpus linguistics to ‘big data’ derived from internet users accessing specialised platforms such as www.youngminds.org.uk which focus on promoting children and young people mental health.

Michael Rovatsos

Senior Lecturer at the School of Informatics at The University of Edinburgh, and Director of the Centre For Intelligent Systems and their Applications. His research focuses on making AI more human-friendly by developing algorithms and architectures that are able to understand humans and support collaboration between them. Making AI safe and ensuring it behaves in responsible ways is an important part of this vision.
