AI has the potential to create positive social change around the world. Therefore we need to understand and address the possible risks it poses for society. To do so requires building new ways of working together that reach across sectors, borders, disciplines and perspectives. I look forward to contributing to the Board of the Partnership on AI and supporting its leadership in building an international community from research, policy, civil society and industry to examine AI’s societal implications, supporting innovation that is responsible, equitable and beneficial for people.

Rebecca founded CIFAR’s global knowledge mobilization practice in 2014, bringing together experts in industry, civil society, healthcare, and government to accelerate the societal impact of CIFAR’s research programs. In 2017, she was responsible for the launch of CIFAR’s AI & Society program to support international working groups on the questions AI poses for all aspects of policy and society. She leads CIFAR’s partnerships with governments in Canada and worldwide. 

In 2019, Rebecca was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Prior to joining CIFAR, she held leadership roles in research and civil society organizations as well as the private sector. She holds an MPhil from the University of Cambridge and a BA from McGill University.
