About speakers

Natasha Crampton
Chief Responsible AI Officer at Microsoft
Meredith Morris
Sr. Principal Researcher & Research Manager at Microsoft

I work on a fascinating range of responsible AI issues with world-class researchers, engineers, designers, ethicists, and policy experts. I also help to shape, operationalize, and advocate for Microsoft's policies on responsible AI.

Meredith Ringel Morris is a Sr. Principal Researcher and Research Manager at Microsoft Research. She is an internationally-recognized leader in HCI, particularly in collaborative and social computing. Merrie is widely known as the founder of the field of collaborative web search; her SearchTogether system inspired researchers in HCI and Information Retrieval to pursue work in this area. Her foundational studies of peoples’ collaborative searching habits and needs have informed the community’s understanding of search as a collaborative task. She was also the first to study the trend of friendsourced information seeking, wherein people use question-asking within social networks as an alternative to search engines; she described and quantified this phenomenon, as well as co-creating “socially embedded search engines,” an early type of chatbot that combined algorithmic search with friendsourcing. Additionally, Merrie is also widely known for her contributions to surface computing and gesture design: her dissertation introduced collaborative interaction techniques for the then-nascent field of surface computing, including cooperative gestures and identity-aware widgets, and her subsequent work as co-creator of the user-defined gesture-elicitation methodology has had broad impact in academia and industry, where it is frequently employed to design guessable gesture interfaces.
