Olivia Gambelin is an AI Ethicist who works to bring ethical analysis into tech development to create human-centric innovation for a better tomorrow. She believes there is strength in human values that, when applied to artificial intelligence, lead to robust technological solutions we can trust.
Originally from Silicon Valley, Olivia began her career working in digital marketing for tech startups. Following her graduation from the Honors College of Baylor University with a BA in Philosophy and Entrepreneurship, Olivia moved overseas to pursue the opportunity to expand her international network as a GDPR and data privacy researcher in Brussels. This experience prompted her return to academia to obtain her MSc in Philosophy, concentration in AI Ethics, at the University of Edinburgh. During her time in Scotland, Olivia co-founded the Beneficial AI Society and completed her dissertation with distinction on the effects of probability on the moral responsibility of autonomous cars. During the final months of her degree, Olivia founded Ethical Intelligence, an ethics consultancy specialising in emerging technology, and launched the company with its initial three clients: Franklin Templeton, the IoT Department of the University of Edinburgh, and the Data for Children Collaborative with UNICEF.
Currently, Olivia works as the Chief Executive Officer of Ethical Intelligence where she leads a remote team of over thirty experts in the Tech Ethics field. She sits on the Advisory Board of Tech Scotland Advocates, the Founding Editorial Board for Springer Nature's AI & Ethics Journal, and the External Ethics Review Committee for Save the Children US.
According to Olivia, “there is something inherently beautiful about being human, in the messy way we approach challenges, learn through the hard experiences, and support each other through genuine connection. We need to be brave in the face of AI to embrace this messiness”.
