Prof. Michael A Osborne (DPhil Oxon) is an expert in the development of machine intelligence in sympathy with societal needs.

Dr Osborne also has deep interests in the broader societal consequences of machine learning and robotics, and has analysed how intelligent algorithms might soon substitute for human workers.
