Ewa Luger

Ewa Luger is Chancellor’s Fellow in Digital Arts and Humanities (University of Edinburgh), Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute (London), and acting Director of Research at Edinburgh Futures Institute. She is currently an investigator on PETRAS, Human Data Interaction Network Plus, INTUIT (EPSRC), and Resilience in the New Real (AHRC). Broadly, her work explores applied moral and sociotechnical issues to the sphere of machine intelligence and data-driven systems, with a focus on Human-Computer Interaction, User Experience and Policy. This encompasses practical considerations such as human-centric data governance, human-data interaction, and how intelligent networked systems might be made intelligible to the user, with a particular interest in distribution of power and the public interest. Ewa currently sits on the governmental steering group developing an AI strategy for Scotland, the Digital Economy advisory board for the EPSRC, Facebook’s ‘Algorithms & the Public Interest’ expert group, and the World Economic Forum projects ‘Data Intermediaries: Trusted Digital Agency’ taskforce, and ‘Empowered Data Societies’.  Previously, Ewa worked at Microsoft Research (UK), Corpus Christi College (University of Cambridge), and research within the Third Sector where she spent 15 years focused on digital inclusion, national policy and learner advocacy.
