Predictive computing expert Lama Nachman, who led the team that gave a voice to the late Professor Stephen Hawking, sat down with Professor Elanor Huntington, Dean of the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science to discuss the future of technology, the next big wave in computing and engineering and the importance of diversity and cross-functional teams.


Nachman has spent the past decade at Intel shaping the future of predictive computing, where devices powered by artificial intelligence can learn and act on their own to assist their owners, businesses or societies. As part of her time at ANU, Nachman worked with researchers at the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science on challenges and opportunities for technology beyond today's smart phones and virtual home assistants. Nachman is an Intel Fellow and Director of the Anticipatory Computing Lab at Intel

Nachman’s work pushes the boundaries of what computing can do to enhance human experiences which is in line with the College’s project to reimagine Engineering and Computer Science, fit for the 21st century. Through the Reimagine project, the College will lead the way in bringing together people, technological systems and science to resolve highly complex global societal challenges.
