An academic, Dr Kanta Dihal studies the communication of complex scientific ideas. She is a postdoctoral researcher at the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence in University of Cambridge. In her research project, AI Narratives, she explores the public understanding of AI as it is constructed by fictional and nonfictional stories: science fiction, children’s books, and popular science.

She is currently working on a book based on her PhD thesis, “The Stories of Quantum Physics”, in which she investigates the ways in which we talk about quantum physics to adults, children, and even babies! She has written about her work for the “Huffington Post”, “The Conversation” and “New Scientist”.
