Apurva Chitnis is a Masters Student in Computer and Information Engineering at the Department of Engineering and is associated with Emmanuel College. His studies are broadly focussed around machine learning and neuroscience, and he is currently conducting research in optimal spatial hearing. Recently he has been interested by the social, political and ethical issues posed by new technologies, which are inexorably tied to their power to change society. As such, he recognises the need for both a voiced public opinion and evidence-based political decisions to guide the impact of modern developments. Having nearly completed his undergraduate degree, Apurva is looking forward to applying his knowledge to solve real problems, with the aim of creating a better world.
