[ Dr Caitlin Bentley ]

Dr Caitlin Bentley joined the Information School at Sheffield as a Lecturer in August 2020. She is developing applications of responsible AI with communities in the global south to support their circular economy activities (i.e. the reuse and recycling of materials and systems to support these activities). She is a member of the Women Reclaiming AI activist network, the A+ Alliance for Inclusive Algorithms, and the Trustworthy Autonomous Systems Hub Syllabus Lab.

Caitlin also contributed to the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data and the Inclusive Data Charter’s resources on Intersectional Approaches to Data, and is continuing this work through research on trustworthy identity systems. Previously, Caitlin worked at the 3A Institute, Australian National University from 2018-2020. At the 3A Institute she assisted in the development of a new branch of engineering through curriculum development and teaching of the 3Ai Master of Applied Cybernetics — a programme to educate a new generation of practitioners to manage AI at scale and make a positive impact.

Bentley has also worked within the area of information and communications technologies for development (ICT4D), contributing to a number of projects focused on enhancing learning and accountability through ICT, open development, the platform economy and artificial intelligence.
