Lay contributor (Patient and public involvement and engagement (PPIE)) in research with a particular interest in mental health & psychiatry. More recently, I have become increasingly involved in the use of AI and digital applications to aid and assist clinicians in the diagnostic and treatment process.

Shakir Mohamed

Shakir Mohamed is a senior staff scientist at DeepMind in London. Shakir's main interests lie at the intersection of approximate Bayesian inference, deep learning and reinforcement learning, and the role that machine learning systems at this intersection have in the development of more intelligent and general-purpose learning systems. Before moving to London, Shakir held a Junior Research Fellowship from the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR), based in Vancouver at the University of British Columbia with Nando de Freitas. Shakir completed his PhD with Zoubin Ghahramani at the University of Cambridge, where he was a Commonwealth Scholar to the United Kingdom. Shakir is from South Africa and completed his previous degrees in Electrical and Information Engineering at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg.

Christopher Burr

I am an Ethics Fellow of the [Alan Turing Institute's](https://www.turing.ac.uk/people/researchers/christopher-burr) Public Policy Programme. My research expertise includes trustworthy AI systems, digital mental healthcare, responsible research and innovation, data ethics, and philosophy of cognitive science 🧠. My research has been featured in the [Conversation](https://theconversation.com/charities-are-contributing-to-growing-mistrust-of-mental-health-text-support-heres-why-179056), the [Guardian](https://www.theguardian.com/society/2022/feb/19/mental-health-helpline-funded-by-royals-shared-users-conversations), BBC Radio 4, the [New York Times](https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/30/technology/facebook-instagram-threads.html) and [Vox](https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2018/11/28/18102745/cellphone-distraction-brain-health-screens-kids). I have also advised numerous policy makers and worked with the Ministry of Justice, Office for Artificial Intelligence, Information Commissioner's Office, Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, and the Department of Health and Social Care. But my most important research is the constant learning involved with being a loving father and husband 👨‍👩‍👧! When I'm not figuring out how to do the above, you can find me at the bouldering gym figuring out how to ascend a bouldering problem 🧗 Please see [here](https://chrisdburr.github.io/publications) for a full list of publications and links to articles (with and without paywalls 💰).
