Dr. Kori Inkpen is a Senior Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research AI. Kori’s current work is focused on Human+AI Collaboration to improve human decision making, particularly in high-stakes contexts. A key component of this research is understanding Bias and Fairness in Human+AI systems, and exploring ways to mitigate these biases. This is an area that she cares deeply about, and ethical issues in AI are a priority for Microsoft. Previously, her work focused on the potential of video to transform the way we interact with friends, families, colleagues, and strangers. Over the years her work has made significant contributions in the areas of Computer-Supports Collaboration Work and Human-Computer Interaction, exploring next generation video conferencing systems to connect people in new ways. Prior to joining Microsoft she was a professor of Computer Science at Dalhousie University (2001-2007) and Simon Fraser University (1998-2001).
