Carla Hustedt

1. What is the best advice ever received?

The most important thing in a job is that you feel passionate about it (I am, however, very aware that this priority setting is a great privilege). Also, it’s okay to make mistakes. An incredibly liberating thought, if you manage to apply it.

2. What gets you out of bed every morning?

The opportunity to learn something new. Working in a team where people are curious and passionate about their work. Also, coffee and sunny weather.

3. What are your next milestones?

Finalizing our project strategy for the next 3 years and continuing to promote AI that serves the social good. Research in the fields of human-machine interaction and the intersection of feminist studies and ethical AI. Learning how to be a better team leader and mentor. More life in the work-life balance.

4. What is your best analog moment?

Reading, I’m still opting for the paper version! Meetings; you just can’t beat face to face (especially when you add a drink!). Spending time with cats and dogs; they are of course nice online, but much better when fluffy!
