Public Service Award

I'm delighted that the WhoTargetsMe plugin which I worked on has won an award at the CogX Artificial Intelligence conference 2017.

The WhoTargetsMe plugin for Google Chrome was created for the 2017 UK general election, and compiled data on how different political parties and politicians have used targeted adverts on facebook. A full report of the findings is in progress. CogX gave WhoTargetsMe an award for Outstanding Achievement in Public Services Use of AI.

I served as Political Advisor on the project, helping to refine what meaningful data the plugin was seeking to capture; and advising on legal and regulatory compliance.
